Hmmm, strange. Haven't seen this myself in my own testing. It uses the same method to detect an admin user as the maintenance mode uses.
Having a quick look through the model (in the front-end), I've just noticed that I've "doubled up" on some code in the checkAdminUser() function (the first 2 lines are repeated), which might cause a problem.
Is it possible to still see the Bots, I see that they are hidden now from dashboard but would like to see them in the Who's Online page.
This so I can block them if they are bots you do not want on your site.
Although the visitor and page view counters don't count bots, the who's online component does. If you look at the information at the bottom of the who's online page, you will see a count of the total number of visitors (less bots), followed by a breakdown into customers and guests. It also shows the number of bots online (but doesn't display them or count them as "visitors").
I did think about including an option in the module for turning the display of bots "on" and "off" (so to speak) for the who's online page. I'll add that in for the next release. In the meantime, to enable the display of bots on the who's online page, you will need to edit the model in the admin. In the "getOnlineVisitors()", changing the query by removing the "WHERE customer_id >= '0'" will re-enable the display of bots (but not count them as "visitors"). This will also display them on the dashboard page, since the same query is used.
