Re: More on SSH problems....

ARGH!  Sorry about that, Corinna... I hit the

instead of to the list!  A thousand apologies!

I'm re-posting this to the list, only.

A shell script rather than /bin/bash is the entry 
for the shell field in the user's passwd line.  The 
script executes chroot to the jail with /bin/bash - 
-login -i.
