Subject: Users stay logged in with screen?

I'm running NetBSD 1.0 and screen.

Sometimes, when a user logs off, the system still things he/she is logged
in.  last and w commands still list the user as logged in.  However, ps
doesn't show any processes for the user.  Nor is there a screen process
running for that user.

It seems that the system notices the user is gone only when someone logs
on via the same terminal line.

I don't know if the users do a clean log-out or not - but the system
should notice the log-out in any case.

What's wrong?
