Yes, the idea was to make it warn me if somehow, somebody got in and was 
trying to play funnies..  Its back to normal now, in 2 years of using dd-wrt 
as my router, no one I did not give the ssh passwords to has managed that 
feat, but they keep banging on it none-the-less.  The one thing that dd-wrt 
is missing is a portsentry or denyhosts setup.  If everyone ran that, these 
shitheads would have to either find another way, or find another means of 
buying their peanut butter.  Hmmm, could we sell them some of the recalled 
stuff?  That of course is based on the "don't get mad, get even" theory. :)
