Oh, bummer, yes. :)
As long as nothing "dangerous" is otherwise localy attatched to the serial 
ports of login machines(terminal servers and workstations) dialout should be

plugdev also?
Would make sense for USB stuff in skolelinux.

I found video seems to be neccessary at least for proprietary 3D drivers
http://www.debianhelp.co.uk/nvidia.htm , maybe also video capture cards. Seems 
OK then, unsure risk for me, though.

Hmm, you're right... strange pam setup.
Puting it into common-auth aka common-auth-ldap-debian-edu did work here 

I'm sure if it would be me to have to edit /etc/security/group.conf next time, 
I wouldn't expect to, and only find out later, if I also had to separately 
put pam_group.so into every related pam service file. :(

Again, can't make sense of the debian-edu pam setup, yet.

BTW: Maybe just add the line for gdm now, too.
