    I have a SOLARIS 8 machine running openssh 3.5p1. The other day, two of
    my users were suddenly unable to log in using the secure shell. SSH
    just closes the connection. The console shows an error message that
    says: "Fatal: monitor_read unsupported request: 24". This hasn't
    happened to all users, just a couple. What is going on and how do I fix
    it? Thanks!
