passwd pam setup breaks gnome-keyring-pam

Description of problem:
Please see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=250147
Currently in F-8 changes are required to /etc/pam./d to allow gnome-keyring-pam
to work as it should. To quote Tomas Mraz:
"The substack support is in pam-0.99.8.1-17.1 which is in F-8 so what's missing
is just to change the pam configuration in gdm package to replace 'include
system-auth' with 'substack system-auth' and do the same for passwd + add
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Sorry that should read "/etc/pam.d/passwd"
For now fixed in pam-0.75-2.fc9 which will be included in F-9.
I think it is worth backporting this fix to F-8 as well if possible.
Is this fix what causes these errors?
passwd: PAM unable to dlopen(/lib/security/pam_gnome_keyring.so):
/lib/security/pam_gnome_keyring.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file
passwd: PAM adding faulty module: /lib/security/pam_gnome_keyring.so
For systems that don't have/desire the gnome-keyring, but still like to have passwd.
You can remove the pam_gnome_keyring.so line from /etc/pam.d/passwd as a workaround.
It shouldn't cause any problems except of the syslog message though.
Can we not get a fix for this bug pushed for F-8?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
