How reproducible:

Actual results:
spenneb  :0           136.46.1.64      Thu Jan 23 06:30   still logged in
reboot   system boot  0.0.0.0          Thu Jan 23 06:29          (00:55)
spenneb  :0           136.46.1.64      Wed Jan 22 07:44 - down   (15:01)

Comment 1 Ralf Spenneberg 2003-10-29 06:57:31 UTC
I just confirmed, that it happens on RH 9, too.

$  rpm -q SysVinit
SysVinit-2.84-13

$  last -i
spenneb  pts/0        0.0.0.0          Wed Oct 29 07:38   still logged in
spenneb  :0           64.105.1.64      Wed Oct 29 07:37   still logged in
reboot   system boot  0.0.0.0          Wed Oct 29 07:35          (00:21)

Closing out unresolved bugs on older, end-of-lifed releases.
Apologies for any lack of response.

This appears to work for me on a current release.
