I think you may be confusing the meaning of "X terminal session". If
you hang an X terminal off of your Sun and open 50 windows that is
still *one* X terminal session.
The definition looks like it is trying to get to the idea that one
keyboard equals one user (though I'd like to see a precise definition
of the remote login session). This strikes me as a very reasonable way
to define a "user".
