When I login (every user) I get these error messages, what could be causing them?
Code:
adriaan@localhost ~ $ su
Password:
configuration error - unknown item 'FAILLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'LASTLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'MOTD_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'FTMP_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'ENV_ROOTPATH' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'PASS_MIN_LEN' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'CHFN_AUTH' (notify administrator)

Did you run etc-update after your last update ? There are some things in /etc/login.defs that need to be updated in order to work with the new pam-login (they changed some option names, and some of those got moved to /etc/pam.d/login).

There is likely something wrong in your login.defs... Those messages are the parser in the pam-login plugin complaining about lines it doesn't understand. So that means that you have weird lines in there (beginning with ">>>> ...")
