[Pkg-shadow-devel] Bug#605329: login on console creates duplicate wtmp entry

Package: login
Version: 1:
Severity: normal

My apologies if this is not the right package for this bug.
Please help figure out if this belongs in util-linux (for getty)
or consolekit.

Logging in on the console produces a duplicate wtmp entry:

maggie:~# last | grep root | head -n2
root     tty1                          Sun Nov 28 14:23   still logged in   
root     tty1                          Sun Nov 28 14:23 - 14:23  (00:00)    
maggie:~# ps axuw | grep tty1
root     30681  0.0  0.0   3032  1676 tty1     Ss   14:14   0:00 /bin/login --     
root     31297  0.0  0.1   5888  3072 tty1     S+   14:23   0:00 -bash
root     31317  0.0  0.0   3300   756 pts/5    S+   14:23   0:00 grep tty1

This is not the case for logins via X in a gksu gnome-terminal
on pts/*.  Those seem to work fine.
