Hi Holger!!

Thanks for reporting this!

Apparently this unclaimed file is created by libpam-runtime (one of this
package's dependencies), but the strange thing is that this software
appears to be explicitly removing this file when going through purging

dererk <at> melee[~]$ cat /var/lib/dpkg/info/libpam-runtime.postrm
#!/bin/sh -e

if [ "$1" = "purge" ]; then
        rm -f /etc/pam.d/common-auth /etc/pam.d/common-account \
              /etc/pam.d/common-session /etc/pam.d/common-password
        rm -f /var/lib/pam/auth /var/lib/pam/account /var/lib/pam/session \
              /var/lib/pam/password /var/lib/pam/seen
        rmdir --ignore-fail-on-non-empty /var/lib/pam

I'm reassigning this to libpam-runtime, hoping they can find why this is

Again, thanks for reporting this and have a nice weekend!
