While I understand these are 3.6 issues, I'd like to 
confirm that we're also pleased with Sun's BSM patch. 
 We're currently running it in conjunction with 
uncommenting the old pam password aging stuff and 
disabling privsep, so I can't speak to BSM in conjunction 
with privsep, but by itself, it's good.

We're running the BSM patch on Solaris 2.6, 7, and 8.
