Use the argument 'use_first_pass' for your module.
password required pam_unix.so <arguments>
password required my_module use_first_pass <other arguments>
try_first_pass should work too.
Also check that this is NOT set:
"The not_set_pass argument is used to inform the module that it is not
to pay attention to/make available the old or new passwords from/to
other (stacked) password modules."
Failing that, set debug and poke around in the source to see what it's
