/usr/bin/w returns an empty list of users...

procps (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Tested with latest daily xubuntu.

Expected: get the list of logged on users with /usr/bin/w (linked from /usr/bin/w.procps)
What happened: empty list...

Since this is a core feature, i consider it critical for release.

Affects : Ubuntu 11.10 oneiric (Xubuntu)
procps 1:3.2.8-10ubuntu5

I did several tests, and it looks like it's working correctly on tty (ctrl+alt+f1-6), unity and openbox.
Bug is still here when selecting xubuntu or gnome-shell in lightdm... It's probably related to the desktop environment, but i'm not really sure how and where to fix this.
