Same kind of problems, everything going dandy (got a small pty test in c written
to make sure that /dev/pts is all dandy) and I get right after authentication 
dropbear closing connection on me. Same thing if I patch up to use mtx (I know,
it's Sun code), if I use ptys classic or openpty. What gives ? thanks. tony
