Bug#544687: libpam-unix2: forks numerous instances of unix2_chkpwd

severity 544687 serious
owner 544687 !

That is, unix2_chkpwd is called recursively again and again and the user cannot be authenticated.
It seems that this only happens when a user wants to unlock the screen, not when logging in.

Does it happen regardless of whether the entered password was correct or not?
