When I run a SSH session in konsole and shut down the remote Linux box, the konsole session freezes

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open SSH session to other Linux system
2. Enter command "sudo halt"
3. The other system will issue the message "The system is going down for system halt NOW!
4. The local konsole session will not accept any commands anymore. 
5. Ctrl-C does help sometimes. In this case, the message is issued: "Write failed: Broken pipe"
Actual Results:  
See above

Expected Results:  
The session should be terminated to allow local commands again.

Thanks for reporting.

This is a knwon issue. The problem is Konsole currently does not put some (potentially) blocking operations into separate thread.
