It work the other way around, where it allow you to log in using the
ssh key password (and ignore the password in /etc/shadow/LDAP/NIS).

No problem for me.  I belive it was added when we believed it would
start ssh-agent when the user logged in.  This is not done by this pam
module, and we do not need libpam-ssh to get that behaviour. :)
