I haven't yet had a chance to recompile the openssh 1.2pre14 with the
debugging flags... However it did hang after logout today for about 30-60
seconds (I am certain we have seen it hang for longer that this.) I managed
to get an strace of it. I believe this is useful even if debugging is turned
off.. The program is currently still compiled with -O2...

It seems to repeatedly timeout on a select, take a look for yourself...
