For some reason, my wtmp is never updated when I login via

Some information about my system:

Linux kernel 2.6.9 running glibc-2.3.4. And the opensshd is openssh-3.9p1
(pkgsrc package openssh-3.9.1nb6).

$ ls -l /var/log/lastlog /var/log/wtmp /var/run/utmp
-rw-rw-r--    1 root     utmp        29492 May 25 13:12 /var/log/lastlog
-rw-rw-r--    1 root     utmp            0 May 25 10:41 /var/log/wtmp
-rw-rw-r--    1 root     utmp         4224 May 25 11:12 /var/run/utmp

lastlog shows me an entry from my last ssh login. And last and who don't
show any of my ssh logins.
