Another interesting one. I finally implemented the chroot to certain users
at login time. I added pam_chroot to pam.d/login and worked fine, but worked
only with login, nor with ssh. I think ssh still have some problems with
pam. I copied the content of pam.d/login exactly to pam.d/sshd and didn't
work. Any suggestions?
