I have successfully compiled the latest UNIX port of OpenSSH under AIX
4.3.3 using both gcc and IBM's C++ compilers.  Under both versions I get
the following error when "UseLogin" is set to "yes" and I attempt an scp:

Executing: host localhost, user me, command scp -v -t test1

If I set UseLogin to "no" the error goes and scp works faultlessly.  Looks
to be a problem initializing the environment.  Changing my shell from Bash
to ksh or bsh results in a stall right after the "Entering interactive

SSH works perfectly -- I can't wait to see protocol 2 integrated!

Any help would be appreciated.
