This line is from /usr/include/utmp.h:

#define UT_HOSTSIZE     16

16 chars can't be enough for today. Do lastlogin and others print longer hostnames correctly if I just change the
number in that file, or do I have to recompile something? And why is that so small by default? Maybe utmp should store
IP numbers instead of hostnames?
