You wouldn't have to do that! Just rebuild OpenSSH with debugging
enabled (CFLAGS=-g ./configure) and kill it with a SIGBUS when it hangs.
This should leave a corefile which you can extract a trace from using:
echo "bt" | gdb /path/to/program /path/to/core
- From the directory where the source is installed.
Also handy would be an strace of the process:
strace -o trace.file -p PID
(replace PID with the pid of the client or server).
Either of these would be great.
