Also keep in mind that pam_aklog works as an auth module too.  So, if some
application doesn't properly handle the session portion of the PAM
communication, you can use that instead.

When used in conjunction with sshd, I suggest using it as an auth module.
The problem is that sshd won't call session modules unless it's allocating
a tty.  That means that scp sessions won't get AFS tokens.  Of course with
your patch, that probably wouldn't be necessary.
