Tried latest Windows client against our demo system, hanged when connecting to
the agent. It seems like the thinlinc-login output was intermixed with the
COMMAND_EXITSTATUS, see attached log.

tlclient.log when it works

Note that for the successful case, there's no output from thinlinc-login at

First test to see how common this is. Test on several windows machines, and
possibly against different servers.

Nightly build of the client needs to be used.

Have attempted to reproduce this on Windows 7 and the XP machine in the lab -
could not reproduce. Perhaps we should test again quickly on Peter's laptop
before closing.

More testing on my laptop, with build 3459. Seems to be rare. I tried 20 logins
against different servers, sometimes reconnect, sometimes new session. In some
cases, doing a file transfer against the same server. The result is:

No output from thinlinc-login: 12

Only HELLO: 1

Everything from thinlinc-login (ie unsupported service): 7

Intermixed, ie this bug: 0

IOW, we can probably pretend this bug does not exist right now.

tlclient.log when using smart card login

Unfortunately, this bug happened again today, when using smart card auth
against the demo system.

Will look at this whilst doing bug 3183.

This could in theory happen with OpenSSH as well. Seeing if things can be

Fixed in r26792.

Tester could verify this with a malicious thinlinc-login that omits the last

Tried but failed to reproduce the problem with the 4.0 client; does not happen
neither with my laptop against the demo system, neither with a malicious
thinlinc-login. Anyway, the latest nightly build works fine as well, so
assuming we do not see this elsewhere this test period, I'd say this problem is
