Never mind, I finally found the problem:

It turned out  that the libdl with glibc-2.0.7 behaves  differently than the
one in glibc-2.0.6 as it appends /lib  and /usr/lib to the list of pathnames
in /etc/ld.so.conf (instead of prepending it).

End result:  some other,  older libpam.so  in a directory  where I  keep old
libc5 libraries, was being run.
