This was the symptom we saw on Solaris and derivatives, which was
caused by the privileged sshd not being a process group leader and
thus the grace_alarm_handler fails to clean up the unprivileged
privsep child here:

grace_alarm_handler(int sig)
        if (getpgid(0) == getpid()) {
                ssh_signal(SIGTERM, SIG_IGN);
                kill(0, SIGTERM);

On Solaris this was caused by skipping the setsid() call, but that was
removed in commit b306986, so probably there's another thing causing a
similar symptom.  Does Haiku implement the kill(0, ...) behaviour
specified by posix?  Does have a killpg?  Does it even have process

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
