 if I run xterm (in KDE) as user zafer, I get following error:
 utmp_update: /dev/ttyp1: Is not owned by you
 zafer@blast:~ $
 and that seems to be correct, because "ls -l /dev/ttyp1" shows:
 crw-rw-rw- 1 root wheel 5, 1 Jun 12 18:43 /dev/ttyp1
 If I change the owner to zafer, the Problem seems to be fixed for that terminal.
 I don't know, if this Problem is related to my system config.
 run xterm
 chown ttyp* to user
