This isn't about downgrading or rebuilding, but rather about sub-par
information. If you're upgrading a bunch of packages (your usual -Syu)
with 'pam' being one of many and it's not echoing any hint or warning
about a soname change, well, duh. PAM is such an essential library
that I wouldn't bother with identifying which services and programs
need to be reloaded, but rather simply reboot. I overlooked it too,
until I discovered I couldn't unlock xscreensaver.
