LXDM logins not being logged in utmp

This is basically the same as bug #870297, but for LXDM.

Systems using LXDM have no entries in the utmp record for logins, so tools like ’w’ and ’who’ do not show LXDM sessions.

1. Start Lubuntu system
2. Log into session
3. Open gnome-terminal
4. Run ’who’ command

Expected result:
You should see TWO entries (the first is from LXDM, the second is from gnome-terminal):
pts/0 YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM (:0)

Observed result:
You see only one entry:
pts/0 YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM (:0)

Additional info:
Used gnome-terminal just for consistency with the LightDM report; lxterminal also doesn’t seem to update login records so if you use it instead, observed result is actually ”no entries at all” (and issue for another report). Also, bug #1027805 about wtmp records is similarly applicable to LXDM, but that remains to be fixed even in LightDM…
