Are you logged in on other terminals? This is normal if you have a bunch of shells open.

Do the world a favor and don't login as root either.. setup sudo or use su when needed.. but logging in as root remotely is a bad idea.. I don't care if your using ssh or not, bad idea.. very bad.. bad habit and bad for security on your machine!
