Bug#60622: general: Users with shell /bin/false are not logged out correctly

Package: general
Version: 20000308
Severity: normal

I have created a new user called reim with a shell /bin/false
(included into /etc/shells, but even if not, same effect) to prevent
the user from login. If that user logs in via a getty the user will 
be logged out correctly immediately after the login. But if the user 
logs in via the login command, the user is not COMPLETELY logged out. 
If I type 'who' I still can see that user is logged in, but that can't 
be not true. When I close the console, where the user has tried to 
login via the login command, the user will be logged out correctly. 
Now another situtation: If I use the login command in konsole under 
KDE the user will NEVER be logged out completely, even if I close 
konsole. The effect is, that the user reim is logged in the whole 
time, I can't log him out because he has no shell or other 
programs running. And I can't delete the user because the 
systems thinks he is still logged in.
