Tested on Debian sarge, with no problems.
Tested on Sourcemage stable, with no problems.

One small issue, is that the tests assume that there is an existing
installation with privsep, and hence require a /var/empty directory to
exist in the filesystem.

run test connect.sh ...
Missing privilege separation directory: /var/empty
FATAL: sshd_proxy broken

After creating the /var/empty directory, the tests pass correctly... is
this desired behaviour for the test suite ? Should the tests be run
inside a fakeroot or chroot instead ?
