I forget where, but i saw an option "delay after bad login/passwd".
It's usually set on 3 sec. So after typing a bad passwd, you have 3 sec break,
and after passing a good password, you are allowed to enter by passwd, but ssh
kick you out at once, without any pause :))
(of course when logging as root)
