It shouldn't be unless you are logged in twice with the same username. I've never had that happen to me unless I was a logged in locally and I was also logged in through ssh from another computer. Running back and forth with being logged in twice. That's the only time I've seen that. Could someone have you login info and be connected through telnet or ssh to your system while you are logged in locally? That's a possible security concern there. Shutdown your eth0 for a minute and see if that other login diappears, this will kick off any network connections to the linux box and if there is something like that going on you will see the other users disappear.
I'm also wondering if you have a cron job running under that username will is show up as another login? If anyone out there can answer that it may be another reason if it does show like that.
