I think this is a duplicate of bug #121944, bug #100504, bug #55193,
and bug #53796.  Bug #86606 and bug #77575 (CLOSED DUPLICATE) are
related bugs, as well as bunches of others related to those, dating as
far back as Red Hat Linux 7.3 but still current.

I'll reopen this as the other duplicates are too cluttered.

Comment 5 Tomas Mraz 2004-12-07 12:29:35 UTC
The patch is legitimate approach to this problem, however it has the
problem of possibly allowing in users which weren't allowed in when
the auth server was available.

So either it must be configurable in the authconfig UI or it must be
done other way (probably somehow similarly to current FC3, RHEL4
