Does anybody know what the primes file is used for in openssh? it goes in the etc dir for the package. the first line looks like this:

# Time Type Tests Tries Size Generator Modulus

so i dont get it, if anybody does know, thanks. fresh build, 2.9p2, solaris 8, using /dev/random (from SKI software, SUNWski) aka cryptorand.
