I'm updating one of my servers and noticing some new PAM entries. For example, from system-auth:

auth required pam_env.so
auth required pam_unix.so try_first_pass likeauth nullok
+auth optional pam_permit.so

account required pam_unix.so
+account optional pam_permit.so

password required pam_cracklib.so difok=2 minlen=8 dcredit=2 ocredit=2 retry=3
password required pam_unix.so try_first_pass use_authtok nullok sha512 shadow
+password optional pam_permit.so

I'm wondering why optional permits are being added? I'm thinking this must have been due to some bug, but I've not been able to track down why these are needed.
