Default pam_time.so and /etc/security/time.conf

I have done a bit of experimenting and I am confused respecting the
evident behaviour of this module.

If I do this:


Then all user ids fail to log in (at the present time). However, if
I add this:


Then I get the same result for user01. If I do this instead:


Then I also get the same result for user01; Forced disconnection.

The inference I draw is that the time.conf file is processed until
either a failure or the end of the file is encountered, which then
counts as a success. Is this right? The manual pages and examples
give no hint that this is what happens. They state in fact that
sshd;*;user01;Al0000-24000 should always let user01 login. And that
clearly does not happen.

Is there something that I am doing wrong here?
