 On Fedora FC3, using logwatch 7.1, I get a large number of unmatched entries:
--------------------- proftpd-messages Begin ------------------------
 **Unmatched Entries**
 bombay5.aczoom.home - 127.0.0.1:21 masquerading as 10.15.114.45

 bombay5.aczoom.home (85.176.88.12[85.176.88.12]) - PAM(ftp): Authentication ser

....

I fixed this locally by changing the script for proftpd-messages, here
are my changes, in case you can add this (or similar in effect) to the
next release:

around line 46, added these two lines:

         ( $ThisLine =~ /PAM\(.*\): Authentication service cannot
retrieve authentication info/ ) or
        ( $ThisLine =~ /127.0.0.1:21 masquerading as/ ) or
