Re: Upgrade from woody to sarge - ssh strangeness

Is compression delayed likely to be the problem ?
(see the note from the changelog below)


 - Add a new compression method ("Compression delayed") that delays zlib
   compression until after authentication, eliminating the risk of zlib
   vulnerabilities being exploited by unauthenticated users. Note that
   users of OpenSSH versions earlier than 3.5 will need to disable
   compression on the client or set "Compression yes" (losing this
   security benefit) on the server.
