By coincidence, a colleague here in Durham asked me a few days ago if I
was still involved with Linux-PAM, because he had some possible patches
for some problems in "pam_listfile()".

Alas, he has just gone on holiday for a few days, and hasn't left me any
details at all.  But I'll give him the infomation in this email thread, so
that this activity can be coordinated.
