This is a general problem with the contrib modules I've seen.  I still  
have a pending bugfix for the SshPrompt module when ~/.ssh/known_hosts  
isn't readable (which can happen by mistake or when ~ is on an  
authenticated network filesystem such as NFSv4 or AFS and the  
authentication token expires), if I ever get our Haskell environment  
to the point where I can build stuff again.
