Commented out means using the default setting -- which is 'yes' for both
of those.  ie. sshd is using the PAM system.  Which means that PAM is
probably working just fine.

These are also the default settings for sshd -- which as you say is working.

Again, this is the default for login.   I should have asked you for the
contents of /etc/pam.d/system as well, but if you say it's not been
modified I'll believe you.  Hmmmm...

Something is a bit fubar somewhere, yes.  From the symptoms you
described,  the immediate suspect would be the PAM system, but there are
no obvious configuration problems with what you've shown me.

Is there anything notable in /var/log/auth.log from the failed console
logins?  Can you try gratuitously creating another user account and
seeing if that is affected in the same way, or indeed if it makes any
difference to the original user account?
