Re: timeout problem in ssh sessions - I found the culprit: mouse.zsh

YES, that's it!  There is a xsel process hanging around until
I press Ctrl-U or Ctrl-Y in a different shell.  As soon as I
do that the ssh connection terminates, too.

Now I am thinking whether it would be easily possible to kill
this process in .zlogout.  Does mouse.zsh keep track of the pid?
A "killall xsel" might not always be what I want, right?

Yes, running xclipboard helps, but it doesn't work together nicely
with other X programs like xemacs. :-(
