 Would you mind sharing a reference such as a DejaGNU Git commit ID of the 
fix for the bug you mean?

 Versions 1.6 and 1.6.1 seem ubiquitous and coincidentally earlier this 
very week I have been chasing a phenomenon with Expect's `wait' semantics 
causing a reliable hang in remote testing if `ssh' to the target board 
stops responding for whatever reason.  I have come up with a solution 
(that I'd be happy to upstream, except that DejaGNU maintenance seems to 
have been dead for like a year now), which I have also confirmed to be 
required with current DejaGNU Git master so it must be a different one, 
and I would like to know how it might be related to the bug you mention.
