bugs in pam_ntdom: module writing to stdout



the samba guys are strange: all documentation reports to a mail address
for bug reports, however that address does not exist. you get a reply mail,
you should turn to some jitterbug system. that system however only wants
patches. if you have questions, you should write to the bug mailing list
above...

ok, i maybe someone is reading here ?
the module writes to stdout via report(out_hnd,...).
it must not do that, but use the conversation function.

reasoning: inside gdm (gnome display manager 2.*), the filehandles 0 and 1
are used for a interprocess communication. also the stdin/stdout concept
does not work with any X11 login. the conversation functions on the other
side can be mapped to result in dialog boxes or other usefull stuff.
