it works reliably on this particular up-to-date sid box, shows the
proper number of failures. I think it must come from login, but I
can't see what might cause to happen or not.
And it works on my Etch box, but my main box is still this Sarge
computer. Nothing in /etc/profile, ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bashrc seems to
produce this message. Surely the message comes from the 'login' command,
but I can't see what feature of login enables that.
