I understand that the way pam_abl detects the end of a failed auth
attempt is dependent upon services calling the PAM functions in a
particular way - perhaps this is different on x86_64s to their predecessors?

"After doing some tests, I have found that the cleanup function registered by pam_set_data is never called."

whether the bug is in x86_64 pam or in pam_abl is unknown at the moment. but ia32 pam_abl works fine.

if the api for x86_64 pam is different, sounds like a pam bug to me. but afaik no other applications that use pam have breakage like this, so i'm going to assume it's a pam_abl bug.
