good day all ...

i upgraded to the openssh-3.5p1-107 rpms over the weekend and now i've a
problem with tunneling. i use an ssh tunnel to make irc connections, now when
i make an irc connection over the tunnel i connect as user root instead of as
the user i make the tunnel with:

ssh 6669:irc.freenode.net:6667 michael@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

then i run the irc client on the localhost and connect as usual, however,
whois looks like this:

[irc_nick] (root@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) : My Full Name

both the localhost and the remote host are at openssh-3.5p1-107 and this
somewhat bad behavior began after the upgrade. the sshd_config is the stock
that came with the rpm. am i missing something?
