Re: cvs threads not terminating--solution

Thanks, I figured this out. It seems to be a problem (though infrequent enough that I couln't find the solution posted here). But there is a bug in the OpenSSH implementation of ssh2 which prevents non-interactive ssh sessions from terminating properly. Rather than try to fix ssh2 (apparently this has been a problem for at least 4 years...) I simply downloaded the latest version of ssh1 (OpenSSH_3.0.2p1) from and it works without any problems whatsoever.


Hopefully someone will fix this for real someday!

If other commands executed via ssh also hang ('ssh host ls', etc) then I would
guess that it isn't a CVS issue.
