Not sure when. I've been connecting just fine. So perhaps the consequences of this bug isn't as severe as we first thought.

Hotfix for RHEL 8
We got a hotfix from Red Hat for the iproute package that includes ss.
To reproduce the problem easily, you can run:
ss 'sport = 22 or ( dport = 22 )'
The fix is now available in the public RHEL8 repos with iproute-4.18.0-15.el8.
