openssh + pam authentication failing +md5 (?!) HELP HELP HELP !

This is the first time i really needed to seek the help of some one who has alot more expertise on this subject since i have almost no hair left on my head which i didn't pull out ;-) 
I have installed: openssh 3.1 , openssl 0.9.6a and i use PAM , most things work perfect, till i wanted to use pam for ssh, i enable also pam support for openssh, also enable md5 passwords support for openssh , added the correct information to the pam file (/etc/pam.d/sshd) like 'md5' , but when i try to login from various servers to that server then shortly said i get "PAM authentication failed, permission denied ... " . that is the problem hehe

Failed password for testuser from port 34440 ssh2 
debug1: userauth-request for user testuser service ssh-connection method 
debug1: attempt 3 failures 3 
debug2: input_userauth_request: try method password 
debug1: PAM Password authentication for "testuser" failed[7]: 
Authentication failure 

my sshd_config, ssh_config are all correctly configured, beside the above passwd/login are also using PAM, no problem
i did a test, i created with another tool a password for testuser, not md5, all of a sudden ssh worked (!??) , but when i change the pass with passwd (it then gets to be a md5) ssh refuses :((( ..
IMHO something goes wrong when the md5 password is read by PAM and that causes openssh to say permission denied ... but guys, what in godsname goes wrong or what did i do wrong ? 

Any HELP is WELCOME - Cause i just don't see the jungle through the trees anymore ! 

Thanks all !

PS: the generic pam sshd file is what i use, added the md5 to it.
