    Is that normal? How can I fix it?

    This is just a shot in the dark, but maybe it's related to AppArmor? Can you switch off AppArmor and check the log again?

    It is nothing to worry about. Obviously annoying, but unfortunately there isn't a fix as of yet. Its just a PAM warning about a module that isn't installed. The module is not required. If you'd like more information and to keep up to date see this launchpad link:

    I did see that bug. I just think its incredibly annoying when trying to find something in the log lol.

    What would happen if I just installed the module?

    If you read the comments on the bug 2 solutions are given. Install the libpam-smbpass package.
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install libpam-smbpass
    Or comment out the lines referring to the module in two different files. :)

    pam_smbpass.so: cannot open shared object file

    In /etc/pam.d/common-auth and /etc/pam.d/common-password comment out the lines that have pam_smbpass.so in them.
