Question sshd and timeout


I would like to know if there is a timeout for inactivity in the sshd of FreeBSD 7.0.

Am just starting to investigate some strange things when I am trying to connect to my FreeBSD box from a uBuntu one.
After a short time of inactivity (a matter of minutes, less than 5) the ssh client is just not reacting anymore. It's not frozen, it's just that no key pressed on the keyboard is displayed or transmitted anymore. After a while, I get a connection timeout message.
Before, on my FreeBSD 6.2 box, i could let the ssh client connected for ages without any problem.

So is there a default time limit set in sshd? if yes, how to modify it?
