I have two strange errors but I am not sure whether they are related.

ERROR-1: Slim allows login without checking for password. /var/log/auth.log
Oct 13 11:44:57: slim: gkr-pam: no password is available for user
Oct 13 11:44:57: gnome-keyring-daemon[1225]: couldn't allocate secure memory
to keep passwords and or keys from being written to the disk

ERROR-2: sshd disconnects (drops) client connections immediately after
login. This happens when trying from host its self or some other client.
Testing from host ( is host's IP)
$ ssh root at
Password for root at server.freebsd:
Last login: Sun Oct 13 13:02:09 2013
Welcome to myNetwork  (the motd message)
csh: No such file or directory
Connection to closed.

/var/log/auth.log for ssh shows:
Oct 13 19:41:37: Server listening on port 22.
Oct 13 19:42:37: Accepted keyboard-interactive/pam for root from port 33248 ssh2
Oct 13 19:42:37: Received disconnect from 11: disconnected by

Thanks for any advice on how to resolve these two issues.
