They will time out when the application tries to send some data and
fails for a period of time.  You can configure ssh to use "keepalives"
if you want to hurry this along.  Or you can kill the process holding
the socket, and the socket will be closed along with the process.  

It isn't something to spend time worrying about unless you really want
to...
