PAM global context?


I did a few experiments, and it seems impossible to manage a global context 
from within a PAM module: each invocation will see a static variable set
as its initial value.

Did I miss something? That forbid initializing libraries once and call
them later. Is there a workaround? Should I do library initialization/cleanup
on each time pam_start/pam_end is called by the application?
