Description of problem:
When logging in through gdm, the command "last -i" shows an arbitrary IP
address. This bug has already been entered for 7.0 :32417, 43690
but apparently it was never fixed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
SysVinit-2.84-5
 but probably all (since Red Hat 7.0)

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login via gdm
2. Enter "last -i":
    
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)
reboot   system boot  0.0.0.0          Wed Jan 22 07:41          (15:04)

I just confirmed, that it happens on RH 9, too.

$  rpm -q SysVinit
SysVinit-2.84-13

$  last -i

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.
