I've got the following showing up on my box

When doing a "w" :
  5:29pm  up 28 days, 10:46,  2 users,  load average: 1.09, 1.50, 1.65
USER     TTY      FROM              LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU  WHAT
msroest  pts/1    X.X.X.X   5:24pm  0.00s  0.12s  0.03s  w

But when doing a who or finger:
Login     Name         Tty      Idle  Login Time   Office     Office
msroest   Mike Roest  *pts/2    147d  Aug 27 16:55 (X.X.X.X)
msroest   Mike Roest   pts/1          Sep  1 17:24 (X.X.X.X)

There is only one login.  But it looks like there is a connection stuck
in the background.  There I no processes running for the "stuck" login.
Anyone know how to clear this out without rebooting.
