Su doesn't work with pam-0.56



If I try to do
su root
(as user han), I get:
Password: xxxxxxxx

su: incorrect password

I put on debugging, and get this in /var/log/secure:

Feb 21 23:24:48 optiplex PAM-Wheel[2391]: Access denied for 'han' to
'root'
Feb 21 23:24:48 optiplex PAM-rootok[2391]: authetication failed
Feb 21 23:24:48 optiplex PAM_pwdb[2391]: username [root] obtained
Feb 21 23:24:52 optiplex su: FAILED SU han on /dev/tty9

This is su from sh-utils-1.12-10. Do I need a newer su ?
The pam_pwdb configuration seemd to be the same for su as for login,
and I can definetely login as root, with the same password.
(Yes, I tried _several_ times, and I'm quite sure I got the
password right).

Han
