Did you file an ITS?

Well, the first thing would be to be absolutely sure the PAM config is correct, 
I haven't had time to compare, my PAM config is quite a bit more complex (with 
pam_ccreds in the mix), but I do have a required pam_deny.so at the end of 
mine ... (and I can't remember if it is a requirement because of the two 
"sufficient"'s, or because of the pam_ccreds stuff which follows).
