    Classification: Unclassified

           Version: 4.7p1
          Platform: All

          Priority: P3

fix for the bug

the check whether ports were parsed OK is not correct; it doesn't
recognize when only one of the ports is incorrect:

# ./ssh -L 99999:localhost:4444 localhost

# ./ssh -L 99999:localhost:88888 localhost 
Bad local forwarding specification '99999:localhost:88888'

this happens only when root uses ssh(1). Unprivileged client gets an
error  "privileged port".

patch attached.
