Hi, I am using Redhat 7.3 which comes with openssh 3.1p1. I am running
an antivirus software called vexira on this server. It starts of 2
daemon processes in the background. Whenever I stop/start these daemons
in an ssh session, it hangs.

I added "shopt -s huponexit" (without the quotes) in /etc/bashrc, but
the hangs still occur. Any advice on this would be appreciated 

Regards, Yusuf
