Session hangs when new console engine DISABLED 13-08-2007 19:39
When "Use new console engine" option is disabled the freeSSHd don't allows to login (session disconnects or hangs - depends on client), turning that option on solves problem but... this "new engine" stuff is quite slow :(

Plus there's problem with user rights - when i`m logged in as unprivileged user (Power User) and change some server settings that need server to be restarted - if i restart it via dialog box (and not via services.msc with Administrator rights) i can't log in (Access denied message). But... think you SHOULDN'T focus on fixing that "bug" but on preventing non-Admin user of changing server's settings.

Please, could you put older version of freeSSHd (1.1) back to download? Hard to say but i think it was better and more stable release and the 1.2.0 version should be marked with "beta" or even "dev" status until it will really work.

ps. problem with user rights also appears when using automatic updates - when i`m logging to Windows as Power User and freeSSHd is trying to install "new version" and then restarts i can't logon to SSH until i manually restart server from services.msc with Admin rights.

ps2. what reminds me about another bug: automatic updates says that there is new version all the time - if i restart freeSSHd 10 times per minute it's every time downloading something and tries to install it.
