Does any one know what causes the long delay between entering the password
to ssh and the actual logging in of the shell prompt ?

Sometimes it takes more than a minute when I know it is not network speed ?

This behavior makes me suspicious.

This is observed on the latest release of FreeBSD.

TIA,

George
