Subject: Wrong entries in wtmp

Just a short description of the problem.

1. I log in as usually:
Using username "januz".
januz@...devel's password:
owldevel!januz:~$ 

2. Check who is logged on:   [last | less]
januz    pts/0        me               Fri Mar  1 20:26  still logged in
reboot   system boot  2.2.19           Fri Mar  1 20:24          (00:02)

3. Then su and check again:
root     pts/0        localhost        Fri Mar  1 20:26 - 20:27  (00:00)
januz    pts/0        me               Fri Mar  1 20:26 - 20:26  (00:00)
reboot   system boot  2.2.19           Fri Mar  1 20:24          (00:03)

Looks as if I've just logged out and root came into my place from
localhost. And this is obviously a lie.

4. the end of root's session, and another check:
januz    pts/0        me               Fri Mar  1 20:27   still logged in
root     pts/0        localhost        Fri Mar  1 20:26 - 20:27  (00:00)
januz    pts/0        me               Fri Mar  1 20:26 - 20:26  (00:00)
reboot   system boot  2.2.19           Fri Mar  1 20:24          (00:03)

This time it reports my ,,come back'' from machime ,,me''.

The version of Owl is the newest one.
