cron and pam



Since this morning's upgrade (to testing) logcheck has been reporting
lots and lots of cron jobs opening and closing sessions. For example:

Sep 13 14:10:01 mnr CRON[24422]: pam_unix(cron:session): session opened for user www-data by (uid=0)
Sep 13 14:10:01 mnr CRON[24424]: pam_unix(cron:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0)
Sep 13 14:10:01 mnr CRON[24422]: pam_unix(cron:session): session closed for user www-data
Sep 13 14:10:01 mnr CRON[24424]: pam_unix(cron:session): session closed for user root

What is going on?

"I will persist until I succeed. I was not delivered into this world in
 defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to
 be prodded by my shepherd. I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to
 sleep with the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny. I
 will persist until I succeed." -- OG Mandino
