I uploaded a patch, which seems to work for me. Any

I tried the patch with openssh-3.5p1-2 and it doesn't change anything for me, the logout is still 
delayed by 70 seconds if I use your example. 
BTW, I think this is a very long-standing bug in openssh, it was introduced already around 
2.3/2.4 IIRC.

Hang-on-exit fix

This is a port of the patch posted here:


to openssh-3.5p1-4.
Besides that I also changed the default, so to get the hanging behaviour (no
potential data loss) back, put "CloseOnSIGCHILD no" into your sshd_config.

Seems to work fine so far on a 7.3 i686 and a rawhide PPC machine.
