Unless my understanding of how the preexec works, that connects as the 
user and then simply execs the script as root.  What that would mean for 
your setup is that you always have a session open by the user when you 
come looking, and then proceed to close that connection thereby 
disconnecting the user.

I'm curious as the the expected goal of this script, perhaps you could 
expand upon that?
