This is still not something that is pam_authenticate()'s business. If you believe that this is a problem, then the order and time in which these are done inside pam needs to be addressed, not by kluging pam modules. Perhaps the PAM-using applications need to be looked at as well to make sure they don't do anything silly. pam_authenticate() answers the question "does the user have the correct credentials?". pam_acct_mgmt() answers the question "OK - they are who they say they are. Are they allowed in _now_?".
