SSH - slow password prompt when connecting to remote box

I had the same issue in Debian Unstable, so know that this was picked up by Ubuntu, but the Gutsy ssh client will pause waiting for the password prompt. This can be very frustrating if you are hitting a lot of boxes. I found this blog entry, have made the change, and will test when I get to work in the morning:

I will post a comment with the results...
