    For 3.7x and 3.8x, yes. This will be changed [1] in the upcoming
    (soon!) 3.9x release. It's already in the snapshots [2], so please try
    it (and report any problems to openssh-unix-dev@mindrot.org).

    Also, it appears that some vendors have backported those changes to
    their 3.8x packages.

         Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
    usually comes from bad judgement.
