I *believe* this primarily happens on Windows2000. I wasn't able to
track down. The problem is that once the system gets in this state,
with 100% CPU it is virtually unusable, the primary goal is to
shutdown the daemon to get the system back for the primary user.
This became such a problem that I finally ended up turning of the sshd
daemon on all my Win2K systems and live without it, which was made
possible by the introduction of systems running Fedora which I could
use for secure access to the subnet.
I haven't tried the latest release, I am due for maintenance with the
impending Microsoft patch releases today, I'll turn it back on for
some of the systems and see if I can reproduce.
My general sense is that it has/had some thing to do with process
creation and signal handling, perhaps a missed signal?!?!?
