sorry to hear that. I guess I was reacting to another posting here in which this very capability was being suggested. I tried to find it to post the topic number but alas couldn't find it. I'm certain you're right because your description certainly described what I'm seeing.
I just realized if I simply kill the ssh, the thread is able to continue and cleanly exist! Perfect, and much cleaner too. ;)
