Me Too.

Here all entries but the wu-ftpd-academ-generated are shown
corrupted. Wild guess: wu-ftpd-academ might write old-style entries,
last detects this and switches back to old-style mode, and all other
entries will be displayed corrupted.

BTW: Is there a way to disable wtmp writing for anonymous ftp?
