    So lately, I've been getting SSH brute force attacks on my BBS, with the client apparently trying random usernames to see which one works.Since
    those usernames don't exist on my BBS, my BBS has ended up with several nodes sitting at "New user applying for access via ssh" status for a while before disconnecting (or getting timed out).

    This should now be fixed in CVS (SSH brute force attacks hanging nodes in "new user applying for access vis ssh").

    Cool, thanks for the quick fix.
