I have not encountered this issue. And I have been using it on 32bit and 
64bit machines with RHEL4 and RHEL5. I guess it must be related to a 
configuration issue somewhere. Not good though.

Was this with the 0.9.2 release, or the 0.9.3 release ?

Please provide this information to the author, he might help you find the 
cause and fix it in pam_shield.

Thanks for reporting,
