I encounter from time to time that on SSH to the FR via the USB network
the SSH-connection on exit does not terminate; a next SSH-connection
(from another xterm) is possible, but does hang as well on exit; I've
look into the details strace'ing the /usr/sbin/dropbear child proc and
it turns out that it hangs in a wait(2) syscall waiting indefinitely for

before debugging this further: is this a known issue? or is it even more
advised to install some opensshd?
