[sessreg] Cannot login with 32-bit UID's

The following have to be true:
- you have a 32-bit UID ( values greater than 65536 )
- you want to create a new X session
In /etc/X11/Xstartup you have to change the line containing 'sessreg'. Adding '-L none' before the '-U $user' will enable login.
It seems that sessreg does not correctly write the lastlog entry for 32-bit UID's. Adding the '-L none' disables it's attempt to write this entry.
