           Summary: Attaching to controlling tty is broken on
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: -current
          Platform: UltraSparc
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: sshd
        AssignedTo: openssh-unix-dev at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: AVShutko at mail.khstu.ru

After upgrage OpenSSH 3.2.2p1 sshd doesn't work correctly under Solaris 8/UltraSparc. After 
login it write: 
sshd[6980]: [ID 800047 auth.error] error: open /dev/tty failed - could not set 
controlling tty: No such device
 or address... And then su doesn't ask password and write: 
Sorry.. :)  Then I compiled OpenSSH 3.1p1 and it is works just fine...  

And there is one more 
problem... On Solaris box after activating BSM security root can't change crontab file 
correctly thru sshd (some problem with cridentians ?). Telnet/Console crontab changes works 
good... But sshd not... This behavior can be solved using "UseLogin yes" directive in 

System: SunFire880 (8 cpu/16Gb RAM, m64 video); Solaris 8 10/01 with latest 
patches; compiler GCC 2.95.3 20010315; GNU Make version 3.79.1; 

configure called with --with-
prngd-socket=/var/spool/prngd/pool parameter.....
