I have been using Debian for about 5 years now. As far as I remember, it always had the "n failure(s) since last login" message (if n was greater than zero).
I have never seen that message.

it works reliably on this particular up-to-date sid box, shows the proper number of failures. I think it must come from login, but I can't see what might cause to happen or not.

And it works on my Etch box, but my main box is still this Sarge computer. Nothing in /etc/profile, ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bashrc seems to produce this message. Surely the message comes from the 'login' command, but I can't see what feature of login enables that.
