Sorry, I have now double checked  and realise that I was wrong.
I have posted this message to the newsgroup as well.

However I would like to say that

1)  It is unclear in the System Support Manual - a clarification of this
would be nice to stop
      stupid support people like me grabbing the wrong end of the stick.

2)  Why do you need the usage logs anyway?  Surely a large pharmaceutical
(their security
      always seems to me to be of military strength) is still going to
baulk at supplying
      any private information about usage on their machines.
