I am experiencing random test-suite failures of SCP/SFTP tests. It can be
reproduced by running the SCP/SFTP test-suite in the loop:

$ while ./ -k -p -v SFTP SCP; do echo ok; done

After a few wheel it fails to authenticate to sshd server. The bug is not
Fedora specific. I am able to reproduce it on Gentoo Linux as well. Tested
with the latest CVS sources of (lib)curl and libssh2 1.2. Note that the number
of failing test case is varying. Here are dumped test-suite logs after the

Any idea what's happening?
