This is driving me insane...
On one of my systems (only one!), PAM_unix sends a log message to the
console every couple of minutes, to the effect that 'cron' is closing
a session as root.
To be precise, the message is:
PAM_unix[<PID>]: (cron) session closed for user root
I don't mind this being logged to auth.log, but having it sent to
/dev/console is somewhat annoying. However, I can't find a way to
make it stop...
The relevant bits of syslog.conf:
account required pam_unix.so
auth required pam_unix.so nullok
auth required pam_env.so
session required pam_unix.so
session required pam_limits.so
