Behavior of module that support /etc/nologin



I notice that if my system has an /etc/nologin file, logins are denied (as
they should be), but users always receive the "Login incorrect" message,
whether there's something in /etc/nologin or not.  Is this considered
"correct" behavior, or is this a glitch?  It seems rather misleading,
whatever the case.

This on a Red Hat Linux 4.1 machine with Christian's pwdb, pam, and
shadow-utils packages installed.
