I already tried to add "session" part to pam cvsnt configuration file  
but, as you said, all cvsnt does is considering the authentication  
part, skipping over others. If i don't recall bad, i did ask about  
this here months ago and was said to me that pam sessions weren't  
supported by cvsnt itself.

That's a use i make of PAM for administration purposes.

I don't know the PAM mechanism completely, but i'm wondering why  
cvsnt does skip other parts when indicated: is it really totally a  
pam issue or just the way pam authentication is called by cvsnt?

Thanks in advance.
