    "As a client, you will experience a hanging session -- you don't return to the local shell environment and the only solution is to kill your SSH terminal window and start over again." What you could do in this case is to disconnect the hanging SSH session rather than your shell. Often this still works, just press ~. () See the SSH man page section 'Escape characters'. Careful on the keyboard layout however; sometimes you need to press a space after the tilde-key to actually type a tilde.
