OpenServer 5.0.4 telnet sessions appearing in "who" output even though the session is dead - help! - SCO

I have a client who uses a Citrix box and Anzio to connect to an SCO OpenServer 5.0.4 box via a network telnet session. Lately, when folks have been idle for some time (like going to lunch), they return to find their session locked. Doing a "who -u" shows these users still in on a pseudo tty with a PID, though a "ps -ef" does not show the session, and in fact the session no longer exists (the ptty in question is in fact free and the PID does not exist).

    Default OpenServer 5.0.4 telnet sessions appearing in "who" output even though the session is dead - help!

    I have a client who uses a Citrix box and Anzio to connect to an SCO
    OpenServer 5.0.4 box via a network telnet session. Lately, when folks have
    been idle for some time (like going to lunch), they return to find their
    session locked.
    Doing a "who -u" shows these users still in on a pseudo tty with a PID,
    though a "ps -ef" does not show the session, and in fact the session no
    longer exists (the ptty in question is in fact free and the PID does not
    exist). Under some cirstances this may be just a nuisance, but apparently
    the client's application software uses the who information (or the same
    information used by the who command) to see that the user is already logged
    in, and will not allow the user to log in. Rebooting the system clears the
    problem, but obviously this is not an optimal solution to the problem.
    So, obviously we need to resolve the problem with telnet sessions ending due
    to inactivity, PC reboot, and the like. We also need to correct the problem
    with who having incorrect data about who is currently logged in. Any help
    would be GREATLY appreciated.
    Thanks!
