I wouldn't bet on that. Afair there were ssh problems on the way, and
even something in the network stack that better should be patched.
I also occasionally have OpenBSD boxen locked up in a way that they
prevent SSH logins and require a reboot. But that's occasionally, eg.
1x in some five years accumulated computer uptime (over several
systems), maybe less, although I'd still love to see it fixed.
