Hi, I seem to be having exactly the same problem installing SRP 1.7.5
under RedHat 7.3 (same symptoms, anyway). Yes, it says the right
password is incorrect, and, yes, it allows me to login with an empty
password. (The old su and login work fine, by the way.)

This message is from a long time ago, but I don't see any
followups. Is there indeed such a bug in PAM, and if so is there some
way to fix or work around it, or is SRP not usable at the moment?
