while we are at it, i had some problems regarding utmp handling in 1.0 and
while running a gdb session and talking with plauterbach on irc he suggested
adding this patch: http://plautrba.fedorapeople.org/upstart-utmp.patch

The patch fixed the utmp handling on my box which is running an LFS based
system with unpatched upstream versions of glibc-2.13, util-linux-2.19
(agetty) and shadow- (login).

The problem was that upstart couldn't find the first opened utmp record on
logout from local ttys for each tty after a clean boot. The behavior was the
same even on a empty utmp file after a boot. SSH ttys where handled correctly
so a buggy glibc was ruled out in our tests. 

I didn't debugged it further after i found out that the patch mentioned above
fixed the bug for me.
