Description of problem:
vixie-cron 4.1 using sysklogd 1.4.1 logs to /var/log/messages
instead of /var/log/cron.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Everytime, see below.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install >= sysklogd-1.4.1-21 and >= vixie-cron-4.1-6
2. Perform some cron jobs
3. Check /var/log/messages and /var/log/cron
4. Find the cron job results in /var/log/messages instead of
Seems so, that the log prefix changed, from "CROND" to "crond",
maybe that's of belong.
Same behaviour of cron logging as in 3.x ;-)
PAM was silently re-opening our log to 'auth.info' in the child.
Now fixed (vixie-cron-4.1-7).
Well, it works only partially for me, because with vixie-cron 3.x I
had no messages about session opening and closing in syslog - and now
I've got with -7 messages about session opening and closing in
/var/log/messages. Two messages for every cron job not executed with
root - is it possible to remove that also?

Would be very nice, thank you.
Sorry Jason, I didn't really recognize, that my recent "problem" is PAM
related - thank you for the mail with the explanations. So vixie-cron-
4.1-7 is full working for me and solved my original issue, closing.
