We are on 5.3.1 one due to a bug that breaks RSVP between IOS XR and
Junos in 5.3.0. But 5.3.0 was the first time we got this concurrent SSH
login bug fixed since moving from 5.1.2.

If you can't leave 5.1.2 quickly enough, your only option is to restart
the management process that handles access to the CLI.

Another reason to shift to 5.3.1 instead of 5.3.0 is this:


Upgrade before October to avoid the inconvenience (or something along
those lines, hehe).
