There's a couple of ways, depending on your drupal version.
Under 4.6, you can stick some PHP code into your theme file to display one
link if $user->uid is set and non-zero and the logout link otherwise. It's
not the cleanest solution, but it's very easy to do (~5 lines if you're
verbose about it) and I did it myself on one site recently.
Under 4.7, you can put blocks into the header of the page. The same technique
would work, but instead of putting it into the theme file make a custom block
that uses PHP code, and put the same code in there. Then position that block
into the header.
There was talk of putting PHP code into menu entries in 4.7, but I don't
recall if that got in or not. Really, though, I suspect it's overkill for
In any case, simply disable the login block completely.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea,
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it." -- Thomas
