I’m having the exact same problem with pam as well, and this is really frustrating, because it really affects a LOT of aspects of the system, and contrary to that post, restarting the units do not fix the problem at all.
First of all, the obvious ones include the 30s sudo authentication delay and 30s freezes on the lock screen. Additionally, gnome-calendar will not launch anymore because systemd-timedated.service is failing, gnome-control-center will also lock up for 30s if I click on some tabs such as “Sharing”, gnome’s dock and application menu will stay blank for 30s on startup as well.
This is a fresh F32 installation that is only 3 weeks old, I don’t know why it’s already breaking down. I’m pretty sure this is a selinux related problem but I have no experience with selinux, so I don’t know where should I begin to start the troubleshooting process. Please let me know if you need more info.
