Quick question about stack...



I have a quick question regarding the pam stack.

The reason I am asking is I am receiving errors and am unable to figure
out which module is logging the 'UNKNOWN' user message. I used to think
it was the pam_unix module but it seems I am wrong.

Here is a quick snippit of the log (/var/log/auth.log)
Aug  3 12:08:51 Gentoo-x86 login[20736]: pam_unix(login:auth): check
pass; user unknown
Aug  3 12:08:51 Gentoo-x86 login[20736]: pam_unix(login:auth):
authentication failure; logname=LOGIN uid=0 euid=0 tty=tty1 ruser= rhost=
Aug  3 12:08:51 Gentoo-x86 login[20736]: pam_krb5[20736]: searching
'ou=campus,dc=search,dc=domain,dc=com' for 'testuser'...
Aug  3 12:08:51 Gentoo-x86 login[20736]: pam_krb5[20736]: found
'testuser' in 'ad', proceeding to resolve to uid/gid pair...
Aug  3 12:08:51 Gentoo-x86 login[20736]: pam_krb5[20736]: authentication
succeeds for 'testuser' (testuser UTAH EDU)
Aug  3 12:08:54 Gentoo-x86 login[20736]: FAILED LOGIN (1) on 'tty1' FOR
`UNKNOWN', User not known to the underlying authentication module

Not sure what module is sending that last line to the logs. Any help is
appreciated.
