           Summary: SSH session cleanup problem
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 4.6p1
          Platform: ix86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: ssh
        AssignedTo: bitbucket at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: sumit_1636 at yahoo.com

I am facing this problem with sshing into another system.
What I am doing is:
ssh root at

Now, this prompts me for password and let me login to
where sshd is running.
Now, I open up another temrinal window of my local machine and do:
ps -eaf  | grep ssh

This shows the ssh session opened with machine.
Now, I open a terminal window of machine and reboots the
system. NOTE: on this machine sshd is running.

Now, ideally since is gone down, the process table
should have the entry for ssh session deleted.
BUt on doing ps -eaf | grep ssh on my local machine, I still see the
ssh session process running.

I dont know if its a bug or not. Kindly update me on this.
