Well, ... depends a bit how one logs in, ... may or may not *directly* be
a daemon, ... but there would at least be inetd or xinetd or init somewhere
behind it ... it nothing else.  Has to be something that forks/execs that
shell or login/shell/process.

... 1 hr. to BUUG :-) ... oh, and I'll be bringing some CDs (Ubuntu & others).
