debug1: PAM Password authentication accepted for user "root"
Segmentation fault

(sshd is the program segfaulting)

Error is identical (except for username) if tried as non-root.

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




Steps to Reproduce:
1. start 'sshd -d' using above package versions
2. connect from another machine.
3. gets as far as entering the password, then *BOOM!*
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-09-05 23:07:04 EDT
This should be fixed in pam-0.75-11 and later.  Please reopen this bug if you
find that this is not the case.
