Second unknown root user

I'm setting up a new server (vps) on a cloud, it's a centos LAMP, with virtualmin as the control panel.

When I logged into ssh today, and ran top, I noticed that top said there were two users.

I did 'who', and get:

root     xvc0         2009-05-01 13:15
root     pts/0        2009-05-04 10:37 (c-86-116-123-16.hsd1.tx.comcast.net)

The comcast one is me.  The other one has been on for several days I see, and doesn't have an address on it.

Could that be the control panel? Or another program, or me logging on a few days ago and the connect not closing right?  What does the 'xvc0' indicate?

Thanks for any guidance on this,  Chris

xvc is Xen virtual console, you shouldn't be worried about it, unless you are not using xen :)
