usr.src/who/utmpentry.c have a function called freeutentries(),
which makes it "forget" current entries in utmp and utmpx.
However, the module also keeps a time stamp to see if utmp and/or utmpx
have changed.
If the list is cleared, the timestamps should also be cleared, it seems
to me.

This have bearing on a problem in rwhod, which I'm filing as a separate
Examine code.
