Comment 1 Jon Masters 2006-04-26 15:40:37 UTC
Setting "UseDNS no" in sshd_config works around the problem temporarily.

Here is the testcase.

Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2006-04-27 09:48:17 UTC
So this is definitely a bug in glibc. At least it shouldn't segfault and I think
the semantics shouldn't change either.
