I've just updated the version of OpenSSH to 4.3p2-1.

This is an upstream bugfix release.  Unfortunately it still doesn't
contain a specific patch, which prevents getting multiple syslog
messages for a single logon, when privilege separation is used.

Thanks to Darren Tucker, the Cygwin release of 4.3p2 contains a
preliminary version of the official patch which will go into the
next OpenSSH release.

The official release message of 4.3p2:

Portable OpenSSH 4.3p2 has just been released. It will be available
from the mirrors listed at http://www.openssh.com/ shortly.

OpenSSH is a 100% complete SSH protocol version 1.3, 1.5 and 2.0
implementation and includes sftp client and server support.

Once again, we would like to thank the OpenSSH community for their
continued support of the project, especially those who contributed
code or patches, reported bugs, tested snapshots and purchased
T-shirts or posters.

T-shirt, poster and CD sales directly support the project. Pictures
and more information can be found at:
        http://www.openbsd.org/tshirts.html and

Changes since Portable OpenSSH 4.3p1:

This is a release of Portable OpenSSH only, to resolve some
portability bugs. There are no new features, only fixes:

 * Explicitly test for egrep in ./configure, fixing a problem in 4.3p1
   that caused some platforms to fail to detect the available fields
   in utmp/wtmp/lastlog records. This bug manifested as missing or
   empty login/logout records (as seen by last(1), etc.)

 * Fix for logout records not being updated on platforms without
   support for post-authentication privilege separation (e.g. Cygwin)

 * Fixed compilation problems on Ultrix, NewsOS and QNX

Thanks to everyone who has contributed patches, reported bugs or test
