Severity: normal

# session required pam_selinux.so multiple
The above line is currently in /etc/pam.d/selinux.  When the newer PAM
packages go in we need to get the "multiple" changed to "select_context"
(or possibly removed entirely).

PAM 1.0.1 is currently in unstable.  So a fix for this is needed in


Also I hope that PAM 1.0.1 will go in Lenny (due to the above bug) and
have requested that the release team consider it.  If they choose to
accept the new PAM in Lenny (which they might have decided before I even
asked them) then getting a new version of login in Lenny to match would
be a good thing.

The old parameter is ignored (so it's not a serious issue) but it would
be good to get these things right as soon as possible.
