severity 648604 critical

Hi.  This bug do not only break power management, it also break the
Debian Edu networked profiles in Wheezy, as they use the killer package
to ensure left behind processes for not logged in users are killed

When a user log in using lightdm, utmp do not show the logged in user as
a logged in user, and all the session processes are automatically killed
within the hour by killer.

Can you please backport a fix for the version of lightdm in
stable/Wheezy too?  I notice it is fixed in testing and unstable

Setting severity to critical, as this bug break unrelated software on
the system.  Having a release critical severity might also help to get a
fix past the stable release managers.

Happy hacking
Petter Reinholdtsen
