Any idea why there's a GMT =0 and a GMT -7 entry into the log file for each

May  7 21:04:22 hostname sshd[7055]: Accepted publickey for blah from
::ffff: port 1218 ssh2
May  7 14:04:22 hostname sshd[7054]: Accepted publickey for blah from
::ffff: port 1218 ssh2

thanks ahead of time

Looks like OpenSSH, but you should specify.

One message is from the privsep master sshd and the other (the GMT+0
one) is from the privsep slave.  You only see it when you have a
/dev/log inside the chroot or you're logging to stderr (eg if you're
running it under daemontools).

This only applies to older versions, it has been fixed since (I think)
