The users that this happens to are definitely not causing it to be malicious. I haven't been able to reproduce it either. I did notice that even I [only using putty/ssh] had an old utmp entry out there for earlier this week. This coincided with when my vpn connection hiccuped and I had to kill my putty window and reopen. Naturally, I can't reproduce it here today. I wasn't aware of utempter, but that seems like the right direction.

That sounded good, until I saw that we have xterm-192-1. But since the two offending users [ones who shows up on other people's who] uses xterms heavily and I haven't noticed it happening with the rest of the group it still sounds like it could be xterm related.

Agreed, but in our corporate environment its more involved than that. We have an upgrade scheduled, but it is still a ways out. We noticed that between different *nix systems that who -m acted different too.
