Bug#228993: nwrite complains about X logins unnecessarily

Package: nwrite
Version: 1.9.2-14
Severity: normal

nwrite will complain if you try to write to a user logged into
X-windows on the local machine:

nwrite: couldn't stat /dev/:0.
writing to jim on pts/0
nwrite: could not open jim.:0

It should instead ignore special names like :0, as they're not valid
terminals anyway.
