This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
QE ack for 4.5. Need another bug to track the authconfig changes necessary.
After more thinking about this bug I think it should be closed as NEXTRELEASE.
The bug is workarounded in current RHEL4 crond PAM config file by not including
system-auth for session. It is also fixed properly in FC6/RHEL5.
Or we could just enhance pam_succeed_if with service matching support which
could be handy and leave the authconfig and crond (because the workaround would
have to be reverted) changes for next update.
