I certainly hope not. Allowing PAM auth and disallowing authorized_keys,
particularly reverting authorized_keys would raise "I don't want to be
dealing with this host/these people" red flags for me.
Assuming it's not a permissions issue, I'd be asking whoever would be
relevant about the behaviour to make sure it's intentional.
If it *is* intentional, it seems pretty wrong-headed.
