Moving this thread to -dev.

I checked out the URL above. Seems simply creating a lib directory
in the PRIV SEP directory (/var/lib/sshd in the new instructions)
would solve any issues folks might have.

I'm handicapped in trying to fight this bug as I simply don't see
it. I can interactively use SSH and SCP (no keys, but provide a
password) without encountering any issues. So, I'm trying to fight
an issue that doesn't exist for me.

There's been no other activity about this "issue" that I can see
on the OpenSSH lists, and it seems to be centered around an issue
with Glibc (what version I don't know).

For the time being, perhaps I'll add to the instructions to create
a /var/lib/sshd/lib directory and let's just see if folks complain
about this problem.

I say let's run with the update and see if folks have problems.
There doesn't appear to be any activity on the lists about this,
but I did notice that 4.1p1 is right around the corner.
