Ralph,

Just a follow up on this.

Although it is ugly, I think the ?xdm? in the IDLE column out from w is
technically correct: w is unable to determine the correct idle time for X. You
need xprintidle or the like for that.

Other than that, sessreg correctly registers sessions in utmp and lastlog for
me.

Can you confirm it works for you?

Mark
