Pam upgrade problem

My original problem was With the default pam options, pam_selinux is
unable to get the user context, during login it would default to
system_u:system_r:local_login_t context. I got around this problem for
some time by changing /etc/pam.d/login line to
Session required open verbose select_context.
I found on that
this was a bug in pam and by upgrading from pam-0.1.77-66.23.i386.rpm
(or earlier versions) to pam- would get rid
of the problem. This upgrade has actually caused more problems. I can no
longer even log into my virtual machine with my install in enforcing, in
permissive mode it is fine. Unfortunately there are no AVC denials when.
My Virtual Machine is running RHEL5, libselinux-,
and reference policy that came with the Bedrock tool from Tresys
Possibly I missed something while upgrading pam? I have looked through
all of the files the pam- has installed and
they all seem correct.
