 sorry, for bothering you with this problem, but I ca't find solutions. 
I write small PAM module, and I've got the problem with conversation 
function with OpenSSH 3.5p1.
When the message style is PAM_PROMPT_ECHO_ON, or PAM_PROMPT_ECHO_OFF 
everything is allright. But when I use PAM_TEXT_INFO, or PAM_ERROR_MSG,
ssh prints nothing on the client side. Does anyone know the reason of 
this, and how can I print messages to the user.
