We've used rsync with an old ssh  for a couple of years with no problems.
Now trying to switch to openssh 3.0.2p1 so we can use protocol 2.  Rsync
the connection via ssh and does it's work. The problem is after rsync runs
and exits
on the server side the sshd session keeps running and isn't closing the
So the rsync client hangs waiting for the connection to end.
Is anyone else having this problem? Know of a solution?
