Ok, one other data point- I should have mentioned in the very beginning tha=
t I'm actually logging into the machine in question remotely, then issuing =
the su command.  This seems to make a difference.  While I THOUGHT the prob=
lem occurred either way, now I'm finding that if I actually sit down at the=
 machine, log in via AFS, then enter su, there is no delay (and no xauth wa=
rning either) regardless of pam_xauth being in /etc/pam.d/su or not.  It's =
only when I ssh to the machine remotely, then try su that I see a delay if =
the pam_xauth line is in /etc/pam.d/su.=0A=0ASorry if this muddles things u=
