From a fresh startup,
1. log in to the XFCE window manager from the SDDM display manager.
2. log out
3. In a virtual console, log in with the same user and run `who`
The value of $USER should be listed once, because it is officially
logged in only once.
The value of $USER is listed twice, and one of them is not associated
with a virtual console.
The way coreutils knows who is logged in is by referencing a file,
referenced as UTMP_FILE in the coreutils source code, which should keep
track of user logins. My guess is that something is not updating it in
My current system config is a bit messy, so I will work on making a
minimalist config file that can replicate this bug.
