Frag. This just sucks. utmpx is a completely unusable API. Amoung
other things, the utx API functions aren't thread safe.
I'm sorry, it's just unusable. We'll have to come up with something
else. I am not going to commit anything until we can figure out a
reasonable solution even if it means building a new API.
: Urk! Where's ut_host in utmpx? I don't see it in the specification...
: Sigh. So much for the single unix specification!
: Maybe I should just adopt the fields in the utmpx.h from Linux. It
: seems to have everything we need.
