It would be interesting to know in what state ssh is, so you could compile
it with debugging symbols and attach gdb.

Instead rebooting, try to kill the pfinet process, which is the network
stack.  It should be restarted automatically on next net access (you might
have to restart inetd/syslogd and other daemons, though, for the server
side.  ping should work anyway).  If this helps, it would be interesting to
find the state of pfinet when the network freezes, so you could compiel it
with debugging symbols and attach gdb to the pfinet process.

I will try to reproduce this here.  I don't know rdate, can I use any
[host], anything else to keep in mind?
