The patch I attached earlier fixes the pbug wfor keyboard-interactive userauth.

For password userauth I think OpenSSH should either support
SSH_MSG_USERAUTH_PASSWD_CHANGEREQ or not even try password aging over the TTY
session as it does now.

Implementing password aging over the tty session is a *security bug* if the
underlying password validation mechanism is Kerberos (e.g., via PAM_KRB5)
because Kerberos cannot authenticate a user whose password is expired, yet by
the time the TTY session is setup the server considers the user to be
authenticated and then client is free to open any channels it wants.
