Agreed, when sshd is configured to use PAM it delegates such things to it (as far as possible, anyway) so PAM is the right place to do this. Personally I think pam_unix should do this check in the account stack (there's also special-case handling of the *NP* string, for example) but that's probably a matter of taste.I agree that pam_unix should be modified to do this check in the account phase. I'll write a patch later.
Please don't make that behaviour compulsory, that will break many installations. It would be nice if it were controlled with some command line parameter of the module.
