		netbsd/i386 1.5, mgetty mgetty-1.1.22 from pkgsrc
System: NetBSD sushi 1.5 NetBSD 1.5 (SUSHI) #3: Fri Feb 16 17:35:44 EET 2001 aa@sushi:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/SUSHI i386

		i run mgetty on my modem port (tty00) for dial-in
		access. when i use pppd to dial out of the same port,
		i get the following from /usr/bin/w: 
		w: Stale utmp entry: dialout tty00 

		everything works ok otherwise & w prints other login
		sessions ok so this is not serious.

		my mgetty is version 1.1.22, installed via up-to-date pkgsrc.
