           Summary: gss-cleanup.sh sometimes fails on fast machines
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 4.7p1
          Platform: Sparc
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2

slow down gss-cleanup.sh

It looks like the gss cred deletion code runs after the client has
disconnected. Meaning, there is a race condition in
regress/gss-cleanup.sh. When the first client disconnects, the second
looks to see if the cleanup has finished. In the mean time, the first
server process may not have completed.

This appeared on some of my faster boxes, I was getting occasional
failures with gss-cleanup.sh, saying that the cred cache was left
behind, but I couldn't find it. Adding a 'sleep 1' seems to have helped
a lot.
