[CentOS] pam_access not working?

I am having a strange problem, where I cannot get pam_access to work as 
intended. I have placed the following line in /etc/pam.d/system-auth

account     required      /lib/security/pam_access.so

Then, in /etc/security/access.conf, I have put the following line:


I.e. I should prevent myself from logging on from host 
However, when I try to log on (using ssh) from the specified host, I get 
in without a problem. There is nothing in the logs. It does not help 
restarting sshd, or rebooting. It does not help putting "ALL" instead of 
the IP number. I happily get in...

Another weird thing is that if I give the argument "debug" to 
pam_access.so -- as the manual says you can -- it does say something in 
the log, namely that "debug" is not a recognized option.

The system is CentOS release 4.4.

I hope someone on this list can offer a bit of advice!
