The other thing I don't like about ssh is that it doesn't enforce the /etc/login.access /etc/limits or the comment field in /etc/passwd (which allows you to set the priority at which users processes run at).. As I have no real need to have my sessions encrypted, I see no advantage to using ssh over telnet..
