hmm, which README do you mean?

Here is what my pam config files look like: (approximately)
auth       required
auth       optional
auth        required use_first_pass ccache=SAFE require_keytab
auth        optional clog /path/to/clog realm

account    required

session    required
session    optional
session    optional standard
session    required
session    optional
session    optional nocunlog
session    optional
session    required

I consider it obsolete as imho there should be a more flexible framework
for Coda authentication than that - hope it will be - but this one works.

PAM cannot be restarted :) as it is just a library linked in by the
applications like login, xdm, sshd and so on. It does not keep more state
than any given corresponding application.

Anyway, it looks like forgotten tokens... suspended, not shut down laptop?

Hope it helps.
