Description Michal Jaegermann 2006-07-21 18:09:24 EDT
Description of problem:

After recent pam changes /var/log/secure is constantly badgered
by messages in this style:

pam_keyinit(gdm:session): UID:0 [0]  GID:0 [0]
pam_keyinit(gdm:session): JOIN = 593955641
pam_keyinit(gdm:session): UID:0 [0]  GID:0 [0]
pam_keyinit(gdm:session): GET SESSION = 593955641
pam_keyinit(gdm:session): GET SESSION = 1
pam_keyinit(sshd:session): UID:0 [0]  GID:0 [0]
pam_keyinit(sshd:session): JOIN = 614504224
pam_keyinit(sshd:session): UID:0 [0]  GID:0 [0]
pam_keyinit(sshd:session): GET SESSION = 614504224
pam_keyinit(sshd:session): GET SESSION = 1

This does not look like it conveys any useful information to
a user/administrator of a system while no 'debug' option is used
in /etc/pam.d/ files.  It also looks awfully redundant.

Is this some kind of development debugging turned on which later
will disappear?  If not then logwatch should be taught about that.

The debugging messages were on by default. Fixed.
