SSHD 3.7.1p2 on HP-UX

I have a related problem with 3.7.1p2 and HPUX 11.0. After
I built and installed it, it doesn't work. And I don't get any
useful info in my syslogs. We use PAM heavily
(we use DCE behind the scenes), so we are NOT using trusted mode
or shadow passwords. The /etc/password file just has asterisks
in the password field because authentication goes thru PAM.
3.6.1p1 works fine with this setup.
My sshd_config file is attached. The same config file and 3.7.1p2
works great on Solaris 7/8/9. Is the a bug or a config problem?
