should ldm warn about multiple logins?

In my opinion, though I'm not a developer, it's a sane thing to do.

Especially considering, as you say, Mozilla's issues with multiple
sessions using the same profile, and Firefox being the number one used
application on most Desktop systems.

If the existing session is a dead one, it gives normal users the
ability to fix the problem themselves in a simple manner without
having to jump on a Sys Admin. If they simply forgot they had one
open, it reminds them of that as soon as possible without having to
wait to complete the log in and try to run one of the ornery
applications. If, however, they know what they're doing, it doesn't
stop them from completing the log in if they so choose.

That's what comes to my mind when I read your proposal, FWIW.

Hope this finds you all doing well!
