sshd is starting niced -2 on it's own?
Hello list. I am on Debian 5 (Lenny), always keep it up-to-date (per
"aptitude update; aptitude full-upgrade"), and I have a problem that I
don't know how to solve (or have any idea how it appeared in the first
The problem is that all processes started by users have a nice value of
-2. The root cause seems to be that the sshd daemon seems to start with
-2, and as a result, when logging in, bash is also started with -2 and
therefore all further processes too.
I have searched a lot, but all answers I found don't seem to apply here.
For example, my /etc/security/limits.conf only has these entries:
* soft nproc 150
* hard nproc 200
I also can't spot anything weird in /etc/ssh/sshd_config.
What could be causing sshd to start with nice -2 by default?
