Severity: normal

since 30/1 lastlog doesn't seem to be updated for display manager logins. tty logins are reported correctly as seen below :  

# lastlog  
Username         Port     From             Latest
root             tty1                      Thu Mar  7 10:49:55 
user               :0                        Wed Jan 30 15:36:23 

31/1 was the policykit update ( ), maybe related to that(?).
