thank you, and how would one do this?  considering that my 'pamh' handle
is being used three times prior to that, in:

    pam_retval = pam_set_item((pam_handle_t *)pamh, PAM_RHOST,
    pam_retval = pam_set_item((pam_handle_t *)pamh, PAM_RUSER,
    pam_retval = pam_acct_mgmt((pam_handle_t *)pamh, 0);

all in the same function, I would have thought that this would have been
okay...all of the above go through successfully...

my only real "reference" for PAM is wu-ftpd, in which the pam
authentication stuff all works, but the pam_* functions that wu-ftpd uses
doesn't appear to be even close to what is used in sshd.c :(
