when I use top or users, I sometimes get one or two users logged in, which is the correct number, other times I get 14 or more copies of the same user. I know the number of users is logged in /var/run/utmp, but is there something I can do to make my system realize (and report) that there is only one (or two) users logged in. for a while, the number of users reported was (number of konsole windows open + number of tty's (1-6) used + 2), but that is no longer the case, making it hard to see how many are actually in (even in runlevel 1 I had about 8 users)
