It sends a channel request of type firstname.lastname@example.org, with "want
reply" set, on channel 0 (normally the shell channel). I don't think not
replying is an option -- the SSH-CONN RFC says that the receiver should
reply with success or failure, even if the request is not supported or
recognized. This seems like a bug. What client are you using?
