#5073: SFTP connection will stall after a long idle
 Reporter:  theallan       |          Owner:  dkocher
     Type:  defect         |         Status:  new    
 Priority:  normal         |      Milestone:         
Component:  sftp           |        Version:  3.5.1  
 Severity:  normal         |       Keywords:         
 Platform:  Mac OS X 10.6  |   Architecture:  Intel  
 I've noticed recently (after upgrading to the latest version and also in
 3.4.2 - I had been using an old old one 3.1 I think...), that if I leave
 an SFTP window open for a period of time (I would guess about an hour),
 and then I try to perform any action, Cyberduck will show the "spinner" at
 the bottom of the window, but nothing happens. Not even a time out.

 I have the following in my ~/.ssh/config file - which used to be enough to
 stop this problem:

 ServerAliveInterval 120
 ServerAliveCountMax 10
 TCPKeepAlive yes

 Do newer version of CyberDuck ignore what is present in this file? I've
 tried version combinations of the commands in the file, and also have a
 file named ~/.ssh/ssh_config (which some sites suggest it should be), but
 to no avail.
