    Well, I took a look at redhat's pam package and found 50 (fifty) patches to
    the original Linux-PAM-0.75.tar.gz, around 360Kb of patches.

    I applied all of them and it started working. So, is this a bug in linux-pam?
    Is there a 0.76 release around the corner? Hmm, I tried the CVS version and
    it also didn't work, so the right patch (one or more among those 50) isn't
    in CVS.

    Is someone else using "pristine" linux-pam out there? Are you having this
    su problem too?
