I have just started gdb to look where the last process (which is
either /bin/sh or /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth) hangs and it's always
the same, AFAICS. It hangs in 

#3  0x6105856c in fhandler_pipe::ready_for_read (this=0x1a0283f8, fd=0,
    howlong=4294967295, ignra=0) at ../../../../src/winsup/cygwin/

In all cases when reading from stdin which is a pipe here (since ssh
is compiled using USE_PIPES option).

Has somebody a clue why this happens suddenly?
