Thanks for re-mentioning this patch.  It does have the advantage of
being a very simple change, and thus having little chance of causing
problems.  However, it is a kluge rather than a fix, so there's no
actual guarantee that ssh will really have time to do its cleanup in
all circumstances, it simply becomes more likely.

I'd be in favor of allowing this for the 2.6.0 release, though, and
then trying to implement a better fix in the future.
