Running sshd at debug level 3 shows:

debug3: aix_setauthdb: AIX/setauthdb set registry to AFS

After inserting "return;" at the top of aix_setauthdb() in 
openbsd-compat/port-aix.c, loginsuccess() returns successfully and the 
last successful and unsuccessful logins are printed prior to the motd.

If I short circuit the aix_setauthdb() routine, will that cause any 

Thanks for the help and the excellent password expiry patch!
