who command -- "7 users"

Is it normal, that whenever I start new xterm, my usercount increases? E.g. phpsysinfo shows "Current users: 7". Shouldn't it be one if only I am logged on my machine with my user account?

Its normal. I usually have 3+ users when I run who. The count increases when I open more Konsole tabs or windows.
