You do not need to set any watch, pam sends a RESP_ACCT_LOCK_TIMED event when the 
account is locked. Before that, the account is not locked. It is counting bad 
authentication attempts and sending USER_AUTH events as the user tries to login.

Pam writes something every time. It sends 2 different events because a bad auth is not 
a lockout.
