Not a huge deal, just something that's a bit confusing.

If a user starts gstm to run in the background (i.e.
gstm&) and gstm tries to connect to tunneling host for
the first time, the following will be displayd:

The authenticity of host 'XXX' can't be established.
DSA key fingerprint is XXX.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?

However, since the gstm is in fact detached from
console, typing yes to the above question will call the
yes utility, which will print 'y\n' until killed. It
would look like gstm printed all those y's :)
