	These are/will be fixed in my NMUs.

	How would you feel about downgrading this heavily, Richard?
	I'm thinking of wishlist here.. He wants OpenSSH to work with
	ssh2 -- ssh2 wants to own /usr/bin/ssh, and make a symlink to
	/usr/bin/ssh2. That's bound to be ugly. I tried to make
	ssh-nonfree (then just ssh) work with ssh2 once, but failed.
	I don't think I can fix this. How about some mercy here?-)

	The bug report contains a patch; I will include it in an NMU
	as soon as I understand it. Will be fixed.

	I can't reproduce this. Wichert could, once. Need help here.
	Wichert? Anyone?

	Send straces to the bug report.. Otherwise this won't get

	I'm still wondering what's needed to fix this, and other
	debconf-related things. NMU ssh-1.2.2-1.2/1.3 will fix this,
	hopefully I can make it..

	This has been fixed ages ago; ssh-askpass is now in
	/usr/bin and ssh-add looks there. I just marked this
