[Plugins-writers] ssh plugin not working?

I experience the following strange issue when running the "local checks"
plugin (ssh_get_info.nasl):

1. The first time I run the plugin everything works fine. I receive a 
report showing me the output of "uname -a".

2. If I run the script a second time I get an empty report and nothing

3. Running the script a thrid time causes a seg fault causing the client
to crash. I get the following messages:

Connection closed by server (SIGPIPE caught)

send: Broken pipe
[4406] fcntl(F_GETFL) : Bad file descriptor

Once I restart Nessus server and client I can start over again.
I'm using public key authentication. Up until recently this used to
work perfectly well for me. Does anyone experience the same
problem? Any ideas are welcome...
