I am using openssh under Solaris (SPARC) 8, and after the recent update to
4.6p1 am seeing two new problems.

1. cmd execution

whenever I use ssh to execute a remote command (rather than obtaining a
terminal), there is an error in the syslog:

Apr 13 05:50:05 www sshd[15343]: [ID 800047 auth.error] error: channel 0:
chan_read_failed for istate 3

there are a number of posts in various, mostly bsd-related, mailing lists,
observing the same thing under different OSs, but no answer to why this
happens, yet.

It's a side effect of the changes to fix bug #52.

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