OK. Thanks. (It is clearer now: you are talking about 2.2.1a, and about
an inconsistency between man page and implementation.)
It would seem, then, that the code restructure would appear to have moved
"utmp" from per-share to be a global. Hmmmm...
A quick glance through the source seems to confirm this transition
(although I haven't had a chance to check in detail, and I'm just about to
disappear for a week in a few minutes' time...).
I presume that the folk who did this had a reason. I wonder what it was?
