I got rid of the erros quoted by installing libpam-smbpass, even though
I have no need of smb. I've since had quite a lot of:-

sudo: pam_unix(sudo:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0)
sudo: pam_unix(sudo:session): session closed for user root

and some for user 'me'

They seem to occur during the night, and so relate to scheduled jobs of
one sort or another, but seem to indicate that whatever it is is
