Description Matthew Boedicker 2001-06-06 14:17:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686)

Description of problem:
the command "last -i" reports the bogus IP address for local
XFree86 logins

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  login using gdm or xdm
2.  in a shell, type "last -i | head"


Actual Results:  mboedick :0       Fri Jun  1 20:19  
still logged in  

Expected Results:  mboedick :0       Fri Jun  1 20:19  
still logged in  

Additional info:

I have reproduced this on multiple machines.  Given that is a
valid IP address that is actually owned by someone, this bug was alarming
and caused me to suspect I had been cracked.
