users logged in using ssh seen as logged in users (aka the output from

The issue Klaus Ade reported on IRC was that a flaky/overloaded LDAP
server might some times report that an existing user did not exist,
and if that happened when killer was running, that users processes
were removed.  It might be an idea to rewrite killer to only kill the
processes for an unknown user if the user is unknown for a period of
time, to avoid this problem with flaky LDAP servers.
