NetBSD squash.bozonet.ntc 6.0_BETA NetBSD 6.0_BETA (SQUASH) #15: Mon Mar 26

With "PKG_OPTIONS.xlockmore+=pam" in /etc/mk.conf, the resulting
xlock program considers all unlock attempts as failed whether using the
user's password or the root password.
Should there be a pam configuration file for 'xlock'? Is it intended
to use one of the existing pam configurations--"system" perhaps? I saw
no errors logged anywhere when xlock engaged.
Set "PKG_OPTIONS.xlockmore+=pam" in /etc/mk.conf and build/install
Run 'xlock' to lock the screen.
Screen cannot be unlocked via password. On architectures that support
it, switch to text-mode terminal, log in and kill xlock.
Workaround. Do not enable the "pam" option when building x11/xlockmore.
