Description of problem:
When pam shells checks if the user has a shell in /etc/shells it doesn't
adequately log its results. As a result debugging problems can take a long time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. give a user a shell which is not in /etc/shells
2. try to login with that user
3. look in the log files to see why the user can't login.
Actual Results: Nothing is put in the log files
Expected Results: something is put in the log files telling the SA why the user
was disallowed access.
