Pam upgrade on RH7.1 broke authentication

I have a Red Hat 7.1 machine that was working just fine with NIS+.  I
applied a Red Hat pam update, which updated pam from pam-0.74-22 to
pam-0.75-18.7.  Now, if you authenticate correctly on the first try,
everything works fine.  But if you authenticate incorrectly, all
succesive attempts fail.  E.g., login does this:

login: satwell
Password: (an incorrect password)
Login incorrect

login: satwell
Login incorrect

I tried upgrading to the newest pam_unix2 module I could find (20010711)
and rebuilding it in the source tree of the new version of pam, but this
didn't help.  Has anyone run into this problem before?
