: i completely disagree with this.  i believe it IS handling the error
: exactly as it should, by refusing to run.
: i would rather find the error immediately and fix it than have the
: software try and guess what i really meant.


And you can make sshd even more error-tolerant by editing the
configuration file this way:

  vi sshd_config
  sshd -t

This configuration-checking facility is more than most system-level
daemons provide.  I think it's quite friendly.  :)
