Thanks, I think that's the issue: The main event polling is not called
why my code waits for a connection. But how do I get the event to which
are attached the default handlers of libssh?

I also looked at the sample code which uses the event API for polling on
the channel. But this would not solve my issue with global keep-alive
requests. They are sent while no channel exists. IMHO it's an issue with
handling messages in the main loop while no channels are open.
