problem with sshd/pam on 5.4-STABLE (also 5.3-STABLE)

I experience the following problem:

connecting to a server with 5.3-STABLE using SSH

ssh server<ret>          results in A
Password:<ctrl-c>        results in B

this is very annoying because if you did this
ten times (eg because you wanted to type
'ssh <user>@server' instead), you can't connect
to the server any more, and it looks like this
also won't time out...

Is this related to PR 74255
and/or has this been resolved already? This is currently
experienced on 5.3-STABLE from Nov 16 16:06:06 CET 2004,
and also on 5.4-STABLE from Sun May  8 18:23:27 CEST 2005.
