Not that I knew of.
I have mine linked to /dev/null for several days now and everything
seems very normal (even more normal than before ;)

And as I just found out (posted in other post) older software releases,
namely W48 and probably before, did not write a wtmp.

So I guess this is simpl a configuration bug in the latest software version.
