I never really looked in to it, but my i386 systerm running sid will
often hang ssh sessions when I am doing dist-upgrade, usually either
while unpacking or while configuring. It seems it never hangs while
doing anything else. I can't think of any reason dpkg should make it
hang, but it happens almost every time (it may in fact happen every
time, I am not sure). On the other hand I don't think my mythtv box
(also running i386 sid) has ever hung an ssh connection yet. I wonder
what is different other than I am ssh'ing in from remote to the first
system sometimes, while I always ssh from the first system to the mythtb
system when doing updates.
