Description Kjetil T. Homme 2000-02-11 11:19:49 EST
pam_console doesn't handle overlapping file classes.
The default file contains <console> and <xconsole> which
overlap, but the <xconsole> will never be processed since
only the first match matters.

We have written a patch to use GSList for the cache instead.

A similar fix should be in Raw Hide.  Thanks!
