    I have an AIX 4.3.3 machine at Base Maintainace Level

    I installed ssh 3.4p1 on 28 august 02 and only now realized that ssh
    sessions stopped updating the lastlogin time of /etc/security/lastlog
    then. Other sessions (like xdm) still update the lastlog. I am
    talking about successful sessions, not wrong passwords.

    Today I installed 3.5p1 and specified

    on the configure command , but lastlog is still not being updated.

    Any help would be appreciated.
