I know this is somewhat OT for this list, but I've run out of options...

I am trying to get xscreensaver to work with PAM, and in particular with 
ldap.  I've tried all sorts of things, including saslauthd, and nothing 
works.  There doesn't seem to be a way to unlock the screen once locked 
unless the user is local (/etc/passwd and /etc/shadow).

Is it possible to use xscreensaver with ldap and if so, how do I go 
about it?
