Re: Perfered idle kicker?





Hmm, I installed this over the weekend and played with it a bit.  I
found something odd:


{0}:/home/staff/rharris>w
 08:49:45 up 3 days, 18:03,  3 users,  load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
USER     TTY      FROM              LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU  WHAT
rharris  pts/1    rharris           08:49    0.00s  0.05s  0.02s  w 

rharris@rharris-build1.acs
{0}:/home/staff/rharris>who
rharris  pts/0        Feb 20 15:54 (rharris)
rharris  pts/1        Feb 24 08:49 (rharris)


The connection on pts/0 was one I let connect and idle.  After a bit I
got a warning on my console for that screen that I'd be kicked in 30
seconds.  After another 15 mins nothing else changed on my screen.  I
did a "w" and it shoed me disconnected.  I did a "who" and it still
shows it.  I hit enter on that console and it is indeed still connected.

Nothing shows in my messages file either.

Any thoughts?
