| 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.
