Description of problem:
After upgrading to the latest openssh eratta, there is a noticeable delay in
logging into remote systems.  I also noticed a marked rise in failed login
attempts and found a one-to-one correlation between each login and each failed
login.  Apparently what is happening is each successful login attempt is first
generating a failed attempt, and then the login occurs successfully.

So far I can confirm that this affects Red Hat 7.3, 9.0 and AS 2.1, using both
password and publickey and using straight files or LDAP for authentication. 
Since the errata was to fix an issue with timing and PAM, it seems highly likely
that the fix is a bit overzealous.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Login to server
2.wait a few seconds
3.review log and see failed login

Actual Results:  Same as above

Expected Results:  Speedy login and no login failure logged.
