Lame isn't it.
Please specify which SSH you are talking about when claims like this
are made. This was also a problem with the original post that started
this discussion. With OpenSSH-2.1,
$ ls -ld /tmp/ssh*
drwx------ 2 cclark wheel 512 Sep 8 10:33 /tmp/ssh-kms30342
This does not work. I believe the naming is ssh-XXX[pid] where XXX
are randomly chosen from [A-Za-z] and [pid] is the spawned sshd's PID.
