Yeah that's basically it.  Doing the same thing for privsep=no would
also mean breaking it for other situations where it currently works (or
maybe adding another process per connection, which I'm not wild about).

Patch #1143 doesn't change the behaviour for privsep=no, and is almost
certainly an improvement on what we have now for privsep=yes, so I
would like to see it or something similar in the next release.

Based on the timing, I'm guessing you tested patch #1143?  I would be
interested to know if it also solves your problem for privsep=yes and
user=root, assuming you permit this.
