Found this bug:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=843450

Apparently after updating the libpam-cgfs packages (as linked in the
thread) it goes away.

It is also revealed that 

 libpam-cgfs is needed to allow you to launch user-owned containers, as
 it sets up all the cgroups for you.

 If you don't use user-containers, than you don't need it.
