I only recently learned about tmux and thought it would update utmp just
like screen did as supposedly tmux is like screen with all the
enhancements but ofcourse, it doesn't have that CTRL-B L command to
login/logoff like screen does and I noticed tmux doesn't even have patches
as it's just a Makefile.
