with the latest updates (not to xlockmore, probably kernel or something pam related), xlock refused my legitimate (system-user) password.

I created /etc/pam.d/xlock with one line only:

auth include system-auth

Then xlock worked as expected again. Maybe, this file should be included in the package?

Additional info:
* package version(s)
xlockmore 5.56-1
fluxbox 1.3.7-5
pam 1.3.1-1

I think, I did not customize anything regarding xlock.
I'm running fluxbox, if that makes any difference.

Steps to reproduce:
> xlock
-> type your password
-> "Inalid login."
This task depends upon
