Kill lingering ssh logins

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I'm connecting to a server via SSH and sometimes it freezes for some minutes, then throws the 'pipe broken' message and returns to my console. When I log in again and do a who, I still see that the user is logged in, and these keep piling up. How do I kill them? I'm logging in as root every time. (HowTos)
