Event Timeline

Some days ago a cleanup was done on 1.4 to clean away some old legacy code, it looks like this cleanup has removed a bit to much...

There seems to be a un-noticed reference to restricted-shell when using radius.

It looks like you are hitting this reference, are you using radius auth?
