It seems I was too quick diagnosing the problem.  Probably something
armel-specific, which IIRC doesn't affect sid (though, openssh is installable
on lenny).

Unfortunately I can't check that right now, since I need that machine for
something else.  I'll hit it again when I get my next nslu if it hasn't
disappeared already..
