Timo, can you clarify this a little more about why you're not sure? By 
that I mean for those of us using PAM and nss_ldap, what's our risk 
level going from rc22 to rc23 and chances something may blow up in our 
face by accident?

This seems like a fairly substantial change to be making to a code 
branch that's in RC status, but I guess that's how the cookie crumbles. :)
