when you aborted or disconnected the session without issuing logout command, the server will keep the entry; doing w or who will show the session, however, it is not active. Usually flagged as idle. There is nothing to worry about, however, you can get the pid and do a kill -9 and that should clear it up for you.
Any subsequent session will have its own id, etc.
