Thanks, good shot, but not exactly in the black :-)

The problems I have with it:

1. I can't disable temporarily

2. it seems it only works for console logins? So, won't work at all for my 

3. I have it on some systems, but on others /var/log/faillog is missing 
although login.defs is the same and FAILLOG_ENAB activated. login.defs 
would also have nice options like FAIL_DELAY and LOGIN_RETRIES, but they 
don't seem to get used by PAM or also only for console logins.
