`who` vs `w` ?

when i try "w" it says '3 users' but only shows me.
% w
  9:03pm  up 105 days, 21:22,  3 users,  load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
USER     TTY      FROM              LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU  WHAT
will     pts/0    wdt               9:02pm  0.00s  0.37s  0.04s  w

when i try "who" it shows me, three times

% who
will     pts/0    Dec 29 21:02 (wdt)
will     pts/1    Dec 21 21:44 (wdt)
will     pts/2    Oct 12 14:54 (wdt)

but there's only one of me!

% ls -l /dev/pts
total 0
crw-------    1 will     tty      136,   0 Dec 29 21:04 0

what's up with this?

See, if you were allowed to keep the money, you wouldn't
create jobs with it. You'd throw it in the bushes or
something.  But the government will spend it, thereby
creating jobs.      -- Dave Barry
