I just tried the 20010508 snapshot, which doesn't fix th problem on win9x.
(The problem being that after scp'ing a file, an ssh process hangs

As suggested before, I updated my gdb (to 20010428-1) and attempted to
attach to the ssh process. I got the same results as before: gdb misprints
the pid as a negative number, then uses 85% of the CPU. When I try to kill
gdb by closing the window, my machine becomes unresponsive (no capslock
or ctrl+alt+del reponse) for awhile, and
I've found it easier to reboot than wait for it to come back.

Not sure what to do from here. Suggestions? Can someone else try attaching
to the process on win9x and seeing if gdb has the same result?
