[svlug] Who behaviour

	I have a simple question concerning the 'who' command.

	The manpage for 'who' states that 'who' reads /var/run/utmp to get
info on who is logged on. When does this file get updated? 'who'
states that on my system four users are logged on when in fact I know
that only one is logged on.

	Why is this?
