Timeouts with OpenSSH

I have been trying to set inactivity timeouts useing OpenSSH on Redhat Linux. I had set up the sshd_config file for ClientAlive Interval 5 and ClientAliveCountMax to 3.
This should time me out in 15 seconds of inactivity, but for some reason it does not work. I started sshd -d (debug 1 mode) and it tries to send a keepalive message to the client, here is the debug errors:
debug1: channel request 0:
debug1: got CHANNEL_FAILURE for keepalive

The OpenSSH was standard install with Redhat 9, and is running as a service. Any comments or help?

errata? I believe there is already a patch out for RH9 openssh. Not sure that it addresses your particular issue, however.
