It's not a known problem as far as I know.
I would guess that the pam_securid module is leaking a file descriptor
which remains open during the session, and when you log out sshd is
waiting for the descriptor to close.
This is easy to check: log in find out the pids of your shell and its
parent sshd, then use "lsof -p [pid]" to see what descriptors they have
open. Then log out and repeat the process and see if any descriptors
