Description of problem:

Just updated my rawhide up to today (11 aug).

xscreensaver, xlockmore, vlock - all breaks with "auth failure" when run from
non-root users even with right password. With uid=0 all is ok.

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


How reproducible:

Run vlock or xlockmore or "xscreensaver-command -lock" from non-root user and
try to un-lock with correct password.

Additional info:

After hour of research I have found temporary solution:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 41756 Aug  6 18:08 /lib/libpam.so.0.81.8

This is buggy version.

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 41568 Aug 11 17:21 /lib/libpam.so.0.81.6

This is OK.

Moved /lib/libpam.so.0.81.6 from older rawhide to my computer and rewrite
symlink /lib/libpam.so.0.81.6 to /lib/libpam.so.0, then restart all apps which
need non-root password auth.

Now it WORKS.
