I have a vague recollection of badly-behaved PAM apps which did 
verification and then immediately closed a session, or didn't bother to 
call anything beyond the authenticate step. (e.g. not set_cred)

If you want to see what your app is really doing there's a cheesy pam 
syslog module at ftp://ftp.dementia.org/pub/pam which may even still build.
