Description Ben LaHaise 2001-03-25 17:58:31 UTC
The startup script for sshd makes use of killproc to kill off sshd instead
of killing the pid listed in /var/run/sshd.pid.  This causes rather severe
unexpected behaviour when attempting to upgrade openssh remotely.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-26 05:55:48 UTC
killproc in 7.1 looks at pid files first. This should work better.
