No, that's what I said, the pam_mount module is badly written and
looking to the code, you will see that it mounts the volumes in the auth
That's not what I learn reading through the pam documentation about the
purpose of auth.
It should mount the volumes in the session part and if so... I'd never
write here because my problem would be solved since a while ;)

If I mount using smb_mount only, it works, because mounts are made in
the auth part.
But, In want smb_mount to mount into specifics directories (created by
pam_mkdir before).
And I wrote pam_mkdir according to the doc and directories are made in
the session part (well, after smb_mount !!).

Did to see the whole function I've cut and paste here ?
The only function of pam_sm_open_session us to return PAM_SUCCESS.
That means that nothing happens using session for pam_mount.
