I see these are actually hitting a rule that makes them get counted  
in the Disconnected counts, but instead of showing the reasons as  
"Logged out" it give us extra information about the session... So to  
fix this I need a raw long line with the Logged out message not just  
the logwatch report version of it. [It should be in /var/log/maillog  
you could just use grep 'Logged out' /var/log/maillog to get it and  
post just one or two of them.]
