Not a feature.  My guess is somewhere in the PAM stack it's blocking.

Can you attach your /etc/pam.d/system-auth file?

The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present.  Since there haven't been any
updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in our current OS release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to CANTFIX, however if you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
Core release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking
the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem,
please feel free to provide the information requested above,
and reopen the report.

Thank you in advance.

grrr, i'm not sure what happened there.  The bugzilla boolean chart thing has
beaten me...

No worries - anyway this seems to be fixed now in current rawhide.
