I'll bet PAM calls "last" to generate its "last logged in at" messages.
Do you see "last" running if you run sshd with UsePAM set to "no"?
Do other login methods (eg telnetd) do the same thing with last?

How often do you clear your wtmp files?

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
