I've seen endless posts about this problem, but haven't found any
clear solution to it.

I keep getting the following syslog messages over and over again in
/var/log/messages, and nothing appears to stop it. I've tried
setting the following in /etc/ssh/sshd_config :

SyslogFacility AUTH
LogLevel QUIET

In /etc/init.d/sshd, I even changed the sshd invocation to:

initlog -q -c "$SSHD $OPTIONS" && success || failure

Alas, the messages still appear.

Here are the messages that appear when I'm logged in:

May 28 21:56:24 hudge sshd(pam_unix)[22685]: session opened for user
jperrie by (uid=0)
May 28 21:56:24 hudge sshd(pam_unix)[22685]: session closed for user jperrie

I suspect this might be coming from the pam modules, not openssh
