I think the message shouldn't be there.  I also don't like the 'tset' thing.
Couldn't it just either guess or warn me?

99% of my root logins look like this:

	Don't login as root, use the su command.
	Terminal type [vt220]? cd /usr/src
	Unknown terminal type "cd /usr/src"
	Terminal type? [^M]
	Terminal type? ^C
