Bug#2253: mailx debian-bugs@pixar.com

rlogin can leave bad utmp entries

Package: netstd
Version: 1.24-1

I did an rlogin to my system, rlogin chiark -l ijackson,
and after this I see:
-chiark:~> w
  4:43am  up 4 days,  3:15,  3 users,  load average: 2.09, 2.42, 2.85, 1/73
User     tty       login@  idle   JCPU   PCPU  what
ijackson ttyp2     3:47am    15      3      1   (bash)
osd1000  ttyp2     9:39pm    15
Szenda   ttyp3     3:48am    55      1      1  -dip (vavatch.chu.cam.ac.uk) (diplogin)
-chiark:~> who
Szenda   ttyp3    Jan 29 03:48 (janus.csi.cam.ac)
ijackson ttyp2    Jan 29 03:47 (localhost)
osd1000  ttyp2    Jan 28 21:39 (tacitus.acad.cai)

Clearly only one of these sessions could be using ttyp2; the rlogin
should have cleaned up the bogus leftover entry (whose origin is
unknown to me).
