OpenSSH-2.1: FROM in 'w' empty?

Hello all,

I wonder if this is an oversight/bug/feature, but here it goes.

It seems that in OpenSSH 2.1, 'w' (or who) command may print out something
like this:
USER     TTY      FROM              LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU  WHAT
pekkas   ttyp1    -                 3:10am  0.00s  0.08s  0.03s  w 
2.0beta1 was the one I used before, and that printed FROM field properly.
Now, every connection gets '-'.
