I have been looking into this. AFAICS display manager logins have never been
logged in lastlog by any of slim, lightdm, consolekit2 or elogind. So, I am not
sure there is a regression here.

I have also been struggling to work out where the user login on :0 (above) comes
from. With the default install could only reproduce logins on ptys. I eventually
managed to do it by adding to the display manager PAM stack in

Had you customised that and it was overwritten in the upgrade at the end of January?
