Where is this pam_unix2 from? I recall this is a non-debian package,
and thus we really can't support all possible non-debian configurations.
I recommend usind dpkg-statoverride to setup kcheckpass as suid root
in that case.

that's in libpam-modules package here. I'm really curious how you can
survive without that, as even password depends on it. maybe we need to
add yeat another depency.
