Subject: daemon/gdm-session-record.c: open/close the utmp database
pututxline() was used without first opening the utxmp database and
without closing it, preventing the logout entry from being fully
This caused the number of logged-in users to increment after each login,
as logging out did not correctly remove the user login record from utmp.
This commit wraps pututxline() between setutxent() and endutxent(),
making sure that the login/logout operation are fully flushed.
Fixes #381
