Sounds good! In the meantime, I noticed two more minor issues:
(a) date(1) also needs fixing - it writes notices about changing the time
to wtmp, but not wtmpx.
(b) newsyslog.conf has these entries:
/var/log/wtmp 644 7 * 168 ZBN
/var/log/wtmpx 644 7 * 168 ZBN
On an system upgraded from 1.x, the two files will not get rotated together,
unless the upgrade happens at the exact same time wtmp is a week old. It
"would be nice" if the files were rotated together, in case one needs to
go through logs. I'm changing mine to use the "specific time" syntax.
