RSA SecurID Authentication

The PAM module for RSA(ACE) does work except in one case:
-  an account in 'next token mode' or 'new pin mode' causes FreeRADIUS to spin 
out and swallow all of the memory on the host running it till it crashes.

I have not nailed down yet if it is PAM or FreeRADIUS but as example, OpenSSH 
has no issue dealing with either instance.  Not laying blame, I just do not 
know the root cause of the issue yet.
