SUMMARY: xterm not working properly with wtm

if xterm is setuid root wtmp is properly updated with the real number of
users on the machine.

But I Ask now.
Isn't a possible security weakness setting xterm uid root ?
If the program crashes making a core, someone could use it to make nasty
things I think... ??
