           Summary: vlock doesn't work with pam
           Product: Codex
           Version: stable grimoire
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: utils
        AssignedTo: sm-grimoire-bugs at lists.ibiblio.org
        ReportedBy: jblosser-smgl at firinn.org

vlock 1.3 doesn't work with pam  After entering a password I always get:

Feb  7 18:41:37 frobozz unix_chkpwd[17336]: check pass; user unknown
Feb  7 18:41:37 frobozz unix_chkpwd[17336]: password check failed for user
Feb  7 18:41:37 frobozz vlock: pam_unix(vlock:auth): authentication failure;
logname=jblosser uid=1000 euid=1000 tty= ruser= rhost=  user=jblosser

If I recompile vlock without pam it works fine.  stracing vlock reveals that it
is going directly against /etc/shadow and not using pam at all.  Since it's not
suid root when built against pam, this fails.
