[development] User last access

Indeed, this is an incredible bug. For example if you have a spammer and 
you block him, then you'll trash "last access" — it'll show the time 
when you blocked him instead of when he last accessed...

Or when an administrator creates a user, the user's "last access" is 
immediately set. There's no reasonable way anymore to list those users 
who have never accessed the site. "Never" is immediately trashed, as 
you've found out.

There are people who think it should work that way for dubious reasons, 
who have managed to introduce this misbehavior into D5 and D6, and they 
won't even acknowledge that it's a bug!


I'd be extremely grateful, if you managed to get this fixed!!!
