This bug was fixed in the upload of pam 1.0.1-5ubuntu1. Changes:

pam (1.0.1-5ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian unstable
  * Remaining changes:
    - debian/libpam-modules.postinst: Add PATH to /etc/environment if it's not
      present there or in /etc/security/pam_env.conf. (should send to Debian).
    - debian/libpam0g.postinst: only ask questions during update-manager when
      there are non-default services running.
    - debian/patches-applied/series: Ubuntu patches are as below ...
    - debian/patches-applied/ubuntu-fix_standard_types: Use standard u_int8_t
      type rather than __u8.
    - debian/patches-applied/ubuntu-no-error-if-missingok: add a new, magic
      module option 'missingok' which will suppress logging of errors by
      libpam if the module is not found.
    - debian/patches-applied/ubuntu-regression_fix_securetty: prompt for
      password on bad username.
    - debian/patches-applied/ubuntu-rlimit_nice_correction: Explicitly
      initialise RLIMIT_NICE rather than relying on the kernel limits.
    - debian/patches-applied/ubuntu-user_defined_environment: Look at
      ~/.pam_environment too, with the same format as
      /etc/security/pam_env.conf. (Originally patch 100; converted to quilt.)
    - Change Vcs-Bzr to point at the Ubuntu branch.
    - debian/local/pam-auth-update (et al): new interface for managing
      /etc/pam.d/common-*, using drop-in config snippets provided by module
      packages.
    - debian/local/common-password, debian/pam-configs/unix: switch from
      "md5" to "sha512" as password crypt default.
  * Bump the version numbers referenced in the config files, again, as pam
    has revved in Debian and moved the bar.
  * pam-auth-update: If /var/lib/pam/seen is absent, treat this the same
    as a present but empty file; thanks to Greg Price for the patch.
    LP: #294513.
  * pam-auth-update: Ignore removed profiles when detecting an empty set
    of currently-enabled modules. Thanks to Greg Price for this as well.
  * debian/control: libpam-runtime needs a versioned dependency on
    debconf, because it uses the x_loadtemplatefile extension that's
    not supported by debconf versions before hardy. LP: #295135.
  * pam-auth-update: trim leading whitespace from multiline fields when
    parsing PAM profiles. LP: #295441.
  * pam-auth-update: factor out the duplicate code used for returning
    the lines for a given module

  [ Jonathan Marsden ]
  * debian/patches/027_pam_limits_better_init_allow_explicit_root:
    Add to patch, documenting how to set limits for root user.
    Include an example. Alters limits.conf, limits.conf.5.xml,
    and limits.conf.5 . (LP: #65244)
