These four packages also link against both libpam and libmysqlclient10
and might experience segfaults when accessing MYSQL over PAM with
libpam-mysql if libpam-mysql switched to libmysqlclient12:

linesrv-mysql, pure-ftpd-mysql, proftpd-mysql and courier-authmysql

I am saying /might/ as it is entirely possible that one or more of
these link against libpam without using it.

(The two mentioned ftp daemons probably cannot switch to -12, as they
link against libssl.)

Steve's original mail, I have not said anything
