I was too fast: I'm still getting the 'w' report:
 08:06:53 up 0 min,  0 users,  load average: 0.29, 0.08, 0.02
USER     TTY      FROM             LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU WHAT
(I was logged in on tty1 and confused myself before)

Likewise, 'last' tells about reboot and tty1 login(s) but not my 'slim'

But, it seems unrelated to the update, since I getting the same with the
previous slim distributions as well; I returned to 1.3.6-5.1+devuan2
just to verify, and I've now also gone "back" to 1.3.6-5+devuan4, which
'apt-cache policy slim' claims is the jessie version; the 'w' report
stays the same (also after reboots).

So, apparently 'slim' since long ago believes something else is
responsible for registring the session(s), but that something else
doesn't agree. Maybe that's down to 'consolekit', then?

A fantastic opportunity for me to gain some "new" knowledge, that I ran
into by accident :)
