--- Comment #13 from Matt Joyce <matt.joyce at cloudscaling.com> ---
So can we fix this?

It's been around causing damage for several years.  And technically
openssh is responsible for this bug breaking a ton of stuff for no
particularly good reason.

So...  I've seen probably 20 or so proposed patches to address the
issue here.  Can we just select one?  Or allow people to selectively
remove the pwnam check in sshd_config?

This is very annoying.  And the reality is working around this or
patching ssh willy nilly is not an acceptable way for engineering
