Is there anything (eg a "fatal") in wherever syslog is sending sshd's
logs (possibly authlog)? 

A change recently went into sshd so the monitor will pass some signals
on to its child, but SEGV isn't one of them.  Should the monitor shut
down the child in this case too?  It probably shouldn't pass the SEGV
through but maybe it should send a SIGTERM instead?

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
