Yeah, SELinux is usually my fall-back thing to blame. I don't like it
when it's not it because it's not as easy as just not enforcing policy
until either 1) a policy update is made or 2) I create a rule to allow
whatever it is I want done.

I added a tester account locally and tried logging in with that. I got
the same error messages in my logs:
Jun 2 23:07:50 zeus su: pam_unix(su-l:auth): authentication
failure; logname=tester uid=550 euid=0 tty=pts/0 ruser=tester
type=USER_AUTH msg=audit(1180843672.674:96): user pid=1881 uid=550
auid=550 subj=user_u:system_r:unconfined_t:s0 msg='PAM:

Is there a good location to place a "debug" option in the PAM
configurations? Which modules would be the most useful to get
information from (and how does it work? I tried one already and I didn't
see any more output in any logs than normal.).
