RE: Re: Re: svn+ssh leaves sshd and svnserve processes running

OK, I got the hosting provider to upgrade to SVN 1.6.5 and OpenSSH 4.3p2. Same problem, but...

On a whim I used the command line svn to do a half dozen 'ls' commands on my repo and guess what? Ghost/zombie sshd and svnserve processes!

Now I'm feeling a bit sheepish for having made a big issue out of this here on the Tortoise list. I went off the provider's techs' assertion that it was a problem with Tortoise. Their techs are very knowledgeable and they provide truly excellent support, hence my willingness to go forward with their info.

I still see Tortoise doing unclean closes on the TCP connections to the remote sshd, and at some point this should be fixed. But the sshd logic should detect this error and cause the daemon to exit anyway. I'm thinking that the provider's techs blamed Tortoise simply because it makes more connections to the repo host in the process of doing its work, so the dead processes pile up much more quickly compared to using command line svn.

Apart from the unclean closing of TCP connections on the part of Tortoise, I don't see this as a Tortoise problem, so I will now shut up and continue my quest to solve it.
