For days I was struggling with x2gobroker-authservice not working when authenticating against PAM.
I eventualy discovered it was the pam class instanciation in /usr/sbin/x2gobroker-authservice that was not working with the following error : 

error: uncaptured python exception, closing channel <__main__.AuthClient connected '' at 0x7f0aa5c11f80> (<type 'exceptions.AttributeError'>:'module' object has no attribute 'authenticate' [/usr/lib/python2.7/asyncore.py|read|83] [/usr/lib/python2.7/asyncore.py|handle_read_event|449] [/usr/sbin/x2gobroker-authservice|handle_read|81])

It seems the pam.py module has probably been refaktored in this Ubuntu making the authservice failing.

Here is a patch for the fix :

                     self.logger.info('successful authentication for \'{user}\' with password \'<hidden>\' against PAM service \'{service}\''.format(user=user, service=service))

Test conditions :
    * Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS up to date (2016-07-08)
    * python-pampy : 1.8.2
    * x2gobroker-authservice : (from x2go/stable ppa)
