Sure, and it (and a lot of other messages) needs to be in the auth
logging context, either with 


at the top of the file, or by using:

DEBUGC(DBGC_AUTH, ("message"))

where it is mixed with other things. 

Could you have a go with at least this much, even if you can't move it
into the auth_audit stuff where it belongs? 

Of course I could write all the patches, but in asking that you have a
go with the patches I'm looking to spread the load a little, and you
have the need and the real-world test.
