pam-0.99.8.1-3.fc8 refused to passwd auth for non-root users

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):
Run vlock or xlockmore or "xscreensaver-command -lock" from non-root user and
try to un-lock with correct password.
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.
Fixed. Thanks for testing.
