Bug#502444: sshd fails at boot-time following reload by /etc/network/if-up.d/openssh-server presumably due to race condition
Thanks Colin, that was really 'sharpish' !
Version 5.1p1-5 works fine, as expected. After compiling it for amd64 and
purging/reinstalling, I rebooted several times just to make sure. Let's
hope this change will make it into lenny.
I wouldn't be too concerned about any performance loss caused by 'restart'
rather than reload. I'm curious if upstream/openBSD has anything like
debian's /etc/network/if-up.d/openssh-server script, and how they solved
All the best!
