I've tested the standard
ac in Ultrix 4.2 (DECstation/DECsystem),
SunOS 4.1.1 (Sun3, Sun4, Sparc), Mach 2.5 (Omron/Luna), and DomainOS
10.3 (DN3500). All of these
acs have trouble parsing entries in
which the line is
ftpxxxx (xxxx being some number).
acs see one of these entries, they log everyone
out at the time of the entry.
HOW IT HAPPENS: if there is a user logged into the machine when an ftp connection occurs, (minimally) you'll get a login record for the user, a login record for the ftp connection, and the logouts for both afterwards (in either order).
TANGIBLE RESULT: the user who was logged in gets 'logged out'
at the time the ftp connection begins, and none of the time spent during
or after the ftp connection. Therefore, when you run GNU
the totals will most likely be greater than those of your system's
ac (provided you specify the other flags that will make GNU
ac behave like the system's).
