Question logname error

when we log into HP servers randomly we will get the message "logname: could not get the login name" if we open another connection we can login
we are running SSH 3.7
on OS B.11.23

this only happens on HP and only using ssh, I know there were problems like this on older ssh verisons but this should be new enough not to be having this problem

anyone know whats causing this? Smilie
