I don't currently have a usable GNU system to try with this (blame the kid
who cracked gnuftp), please could anyone do it?
IIRC the problem is with default configuration (ie, PrivSep enabled) sshd
doesn't accept logins.
Colin: please keep the bug open untill fixed, it'd be very impractical for us
to lose all the logged information.
