>Description:

	Login to a machine over ssh or telnet. Typing 'w' shows the logged
	in users, along with the machine they are logging in from. Typing
	'w -n' should give the same information, but without resolving the
	IP addresses to names. This works for IPv4 connections, but not for
	IPv6

>How-To-Repeat:

	Login over an IPv6 connection and observe the output of 'w -n'
	compared to logging in over IPv4
