Radwho output question

I have Freeradius running on a Fedora Core 4 server and it has been
running stable for about a week. I transistioned from Cistron, and
although the process took me a bit, I was able to use the documentation,
comments in the config files, and mailing list archives to find the
information needed to configure, test, and run Freeradius.
The only question I am left with is when running radwho - in the 'What'
column there are mostly PPP entries, which I expect. However, there are
a few 'shell' entries, which I don't know if they are ok or not.
I am using PAM authentication and standard Linux accounts for users.
These users are defined as nologin for thier shell so I have made a
mistake somewhere in my configuration. The users themselves do not
notice a difference, I am only concerned that it is a vulnerability or
misconfiguration on my part. the users file in raddb only has PPP,
CSLIP, and SLIP in the default hint entries, and only PAM as auth-type.
Service type is Framed-User.
In reading the documentation and using google, I cannot determine what
spcifically influences the entry in the 'What' column in my
configuration. This could be my Freeradius configuration, my NAS
(Ascend Max), or my users account definition. I just cannot determine
which component is doing this.
Any help pointing me in the right direction would be appriciated.
