Description mag@xamarin.com 2016-08-24 14:46:56 UTC
Sometimes the SSH connection established is not correctly disposed after disconnecting XMA, causing sshd zombie process on Mac and a connection opened on Windows.

* Steps to reproduce:

1 - Open VS
2 - Connect to XMA
3 - Verify sshd instances on Mac after fully connected (ps -A | grep sshd)
4 - Verify SSH connections opened on Windows (using TCPView or similar)
5 - Disconnect XMA
6 - Repeat steps 3 and 4

* Expected Result:

No SSH connections should be opened after disconnecting XMA

* Actual Result:

An SSH connection remains alive, even if the rest are properly closed

* Comments:

The SSH connection alive has been identified as the connection established to use the SCP Client.
