Ok, now this is irritating.  I got back from four days leave, updated my
system (which was autoconf, gtk-doc-am, grub, openrc and glib) and now,
local and SSH logins both work with my AD account.  So thankfully it
works, but now I've no idea why.

For the record, my PAM configs looked pretty much the same as what was
in your link anyway, at least for the auth and account sections.  I
believe the other two (password and session) don't come in to play
unless the login was successful anyway?  I'm still trying to wrap my
head around PAM...

But for now, thanks for the assistance, and if I have further questions,
I'll let you know.  :-)
