OpenSSH - SFTP issue

   We are having issue with SFTP for Windows server. The OpenSSH reports
   the "Exit Staus -1" upon exiting the sftp session ( Though the file is
   successfully getting transferred!!). I have opened ticket with VanDyke
   Software - vShell and reported this issue. Accordiong to VanDyke
   Software, there is no issue with vShell configuration / its debug logs.

   Would you please let us know, what is this "Exit Status -1"?. Note that
   when transfering to Unix servers, it gives "Exit Status 0".

   Sample Log:
   debug3: channel 0: status: The following connections are open:
     #0 client-session (t4 r0 i3/0 o3/0 fd -1/-1)

   debug3: channel 0: close_fds r -1 w -1 e 7
   debug1: fd 0 clearing O_NONBLOCK
   debug2: fd 1 is not O_NONBLOCK
   debug1: Transferred: stdin 0, stdout 0, stderr 0 bytes in 2.5 seconds
   debug1: Bytes per second: stdin 0.0, stdout 0.0, stderr 0.0
   debug1: Exit status -1

   Please let me know if you need any more detials.

   Thanks & Regards
