Im not sure, but it looks like PAM authentication to me. It's checking the user logged via ssh and finding out its not a local user it's deleting it's mail folder, or something along those lines. I think its perfectly safe, but check with someone else on this since i never worked with PAM.
Damn, two weeks away and i already forgot how to type fast....
