On sparc64 when I used the "w" command, the screen logins had absurdly
large login and idle times. This was due to a bug in utmp.c:
# define utmp utmpx
# define ut_time ut_xtime
struct utmp *u;
The above works fine on i386 where ut_xtime and time_t are the same size,
but on sparc64 ut_xtime is 8 bytes rather than 4.
