[vox-tech] sshd premature termination

hey all,

i've been having this slightly problem periodically on a deb potato system at

Right after connecting, motd and all flashes by, and then sshd terminates the
connection, spouting something about connection terminated on signal 13.

Looking thru my logs i see:

Oct 26 14:29:17 foo PAM_unix[11627]: (ssh) session opened for user yamara by
Oct 26 14:29:17 foo sshd[11627]: Disconnecting: Command terminated on signal

looking thru man (7) signal, i see:

SIGPIPE      13        A      Broken pipe: write to pipe with no readers

occasionally i see dns misses (where the proclaimed hostname is not the same
as the hostname reversed), which is ok, since my /etc/hosts.deny doesn't allow
that. This only happens on external incoming connections.

Am i seeing a different version of this on the internal network?

ideas? anyone?
