That's interesting. I had it tested by my users who are not at an
e-mail address related to mine and they couldn't get "who" at all if
who access is set to closed.
Also I am on a MD list run by someone else and he has turned off
"who" so when I have tried it it comes back with a nice little
message about that function being disabled.
It might be different installs/patches issue.
It's a gypsy mystery.
