This bug was fixed in the package dropbear - 2017.75-2

dropbear (2017.75-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * dropbear-initramfs:
    + init-bottom script: in the init-bottom script, send a SIGTERM to all
      process groups the leader of which is a child of the dropbear process,
      to ensure that all children of all SSH sessions are terminated (before
      dropear itself is killed).
    + postinst: don't print the reminder to check "ip=" boot parameter if it's
      already found in /proc/cmdline.
    + premount script: log to standard error if the 'debug' environment
      variable is set.
    + premount script: boot method (local or NFS) is in environment variable
      'BOOT' not 'boot'.
    + On local mounts, don't bring down the network before dropbear was
      terminated (at init-bottom stage, not at local-bottom stage).  Bringing
      down the network while an SSH session is still active makes clients hang
      until the connection times out.
    + init-bottom script: log which network interfaces are being brought down.
    + init-bottom script: replace xargs(1) with a while loop as it's
      apparently not included in Ubuntu's busybox.  (LP: #1652091)
    + Compile with '--disable-bundled-libtom' to use system libtomcrypt /
      libtommath.  (Closes: #870035)
  * debian/control: bump Standards-Version to 4.0.0 (no changes necessary).
  * debian/{control,dropbear-bin.install,dropbear-bin.manpages}: apply
