log su attempts to /var/log/sulog

I've got a problem configuring /etc/login.defs to log
all su attempts to /var/log/sulog.

Here is the (I think) relevant part of login.defs:
FAILLOG_ENAB            yes
LOG_OK_LOGINS           yes
LASTLOG_ENAB            yes
SYSLOG_SU_ENAB          yes
SYSLOG_SG_ENAB          yes
CONSOLE         /etc/securetty
SULOG_FILE      /var/log/sulog
SU_NAME         su

After editing login.defs, I touched /var/log/sulog
and /var/log/faillog, but nothing gets logged in the sulog-file.
Against my religion, I even rebooted the machine, but still no cigar..

Is this a bug in shadow-20001016, or did I forget something ??
