errta - the problem maybe was in cased of failed logins you see no
difference without %$ comapred to a succesfull login

login_log_format_elements      = status=%status <%u> %r %m %c
login_log_format               = %s

would perfectly solve this while %status or whatever placeholder would be failed / success
