I also have it:

sm01@stt008:~$ who
sm01     tty7         2012-04-25 07:43 (:0)
sm01     pts/0        2012-04-25 18:11 (:0.0)

sm01@stt008:~$ w
 18:25:21 up 10:42,  2 users,  load average: 0,10, 0,06, 0,01
USER     TTY      FROM              LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU WHAT
sm01     tty7     :0               07:43    0.00s 29:00   0.34s x-session-manager
sm01     pts/0    :0.0             18:11    0.00s  0.06s  0.00s w
