> login_log_format_elements does not seem to change the login logs.  I have it set to the below setting and the word "home" does not even appear.  Is there something I have to do to for this?  Also I use ldap for authentication.

%h isn't a valid variable in there. It expands to empty, so it's not added to the log. There's no way to log the home directory in there, because auth process doesn't send it to the login process (and actually it hasn't even gotten around to looking it up at that point).
