A followup on bug #86908 gives a solution, or is it a workaround:
: This is related to the addition of libcap support to pam_limits.so, which is
: called from /etc/pam.d/ssh. A workaround is to remove or comment out the
: session required pam_limits.so
: line in this file, but the fix ultimately needs to be made in the
: libpam-modules package, since pam_limits.so appears not to work on several
: architectures now.
: Steve Langasek
: postmodern programmer
And indeed, commenting that line out results in an
instantly working sshd.
