Good day to you.

When doing as root:
  echo 'su $USER ls'|at now
auth.log logs
  [...] su: pam_ck_connector(su:session): cannot determine display-device

I presume that is because there rightfully is none.

If this is not a more general bug, it should at least be possible to
silence the logging as it spams (at least my) log files.

Thank you for your effords!
