netstat from ssh_prng_cmds taking too much CPU on AIX

I recently installed OpenSSH 3.9p1 on an AIX 5.1 system. Since then we have
noticed that ssh_rand_helper has started netstat commands (from
ssh_prng_cmds) that don't finish quickly and cause the CPU to jump to almost
no idle for extended lengths of time - usually about 20 minutes or so.
I have commented out the netstat commands in the ...cmds file and wonder if
anyone has either a warning about doing that or a better resolution to my
problem. Thanks in advance.
