vrf exec default bash and ssh idle timers

i have mgmt vrf configured but with ntp source interface outside the mgmt vrf, I sometimes execute "vrf exec default bash" to get out of the mgmt vrf and check the ntp status.

I have noticed the ssh idle timers are not working when i get out of the mgmt vrf (This is on cumulus 3.4.3.)

Have you submitted a ticket to our support team for this? Or else, do you have some logs you can share that show the idle timers not working?
i will submit a support ticket shortly
i had to add the below lines to /etc/ssh/sshd_config for ssh sessions to timeout

ClientAliveInterval 120
ClientAliveCountMax 0

seems the "export TMOUT=120" in /etc/profile doesn't apply the timeout when changing to default bash from mgmt vrf.
