Since updating to openssh 4.1 on AIX 5.2 I have
started getting the following messages through
syslog:

Oct 10 08:40:55 bos sshd[1314904]: error: getsockname
failed: A
file descriptor does not refer to an open file.

I don't think they are causing a problem, but am not
sure what they mean or how to stop them.

Anyone else seeing this?

Thanks,

Sam

    I am seeing this, too, with OpenSSH 4.2p1 on AIX 5.3.
    When a user logs in and is forced to change their password
    (e.g. a new account or one where the password was reset by
    root), the password change is successful, but the user is
    not logged off automatically. I opened a bug with the
    OpenSSH developers on Bugzilla, but they say they can't
    really help because IBM has made code changes.

    Oh, and I also noticed that when this happens, the "last
    login" information is not displayed. Maybe a connection
    there somehow?
