Utility to determine if a user has logged on more than once

I need to find a utility to tell me if a user is logged on more than once on an NT4 domain -- dumpsec and reallastlogon.exe tell me the last time someone logged on, but they do not tell me if a user logged on more than once.

Unfortunately, I don't know of one, and neither do my contacts at Microsoft.

The problem is that the domain controller records the last logon time as a property of the user account. This isn't replicated across all the domain controllers, and consequently, you have to get the data from all the controllers and correlate it yourself.
