That is of "important" severity. Work has been done to mitigate the effects of 
that bug. Not resolved indeed, but worked around so it's not a critical issue 
anymore: it will work for most systems and conflicts with environments that 
may be insecure.

There has been a message to that bug 4 months ago by the NMU'er saying why he 
thinks more information is needed before this could still be considered as 
RC. Currently only "it might crash with unknown pam modules" is the best 
available information, and no-one has gotten around to adding any 
clarification to that in the past 4 months.

I don't know the policy on re-including packages, but bug #318123 should not 
be the thing blocking it unless there's more concrete evidence regarding 
which situation will expose users.
