I do.

I modified timeout handling in ssh_handle_packets_termination() in my
local copy two years ago because I ran into code paths where, even
though a timeout was configured, ssh_handle_packets_termination() would
block with an infinite timeout, resulting in stalled connections. My
code change fixed that issue, but obviously created another one. I guess
I did not submit my solution as a patch because I knew it wasn't proper
code. Time for re-evaluation... :P
