Ok. I tried both with no results. The man page doesn't mention what is
default so I tried every combination possible. The man page also says
utmp is in /etc but it is in /var/run so I made a link from /etc/utmp to
/var/run/utmp but that did not help. This is strange, no matter what,
'xterm -ls +ut' should update utmp but it does not.
