Had a quick look. It contains an obvious missing null pointer check. Would
also need security review against pam_console and an explanation of why
it relies on pam_console innards (paths etc)

If dbus is using getusername() I hope it to is considering NULL pointer
cases. I'd also like to know it is grovelling in pam related innards - do
we in fact need a libconsole library to wrap this from pam and utility sides ?
