I am unable to get `auth-pkcs11` to pass. The first problem is the
hardcoded Fedora path in tests/.config/pkcs11/modules/softhsm2.module.

After fixing that for my system (/usr/lib/softhsm/, the
test fails with:

I'm happy to run more tests if there is something worth debugging here,
but I don't know what to look at.
