finger --> really odd results.

TOP shows an uptime of 87 days, yet when I do "finger" at the SSH prompted, I get this:

Login Name Tty Idle Login Time Office Office Phone
admin pts/0 Jul 2 00:48 (my-incoming-ISP-info)
admin pts/2 182d Apr 30 16:32 (


Take a look at that second entry above. Idle = 182d ???

Also, I have searched for the process that may be holding open this login using ps -ef and no where can I find a listing for pts/2

Any ideas, anyone?
