SSH Daemon failing

Hi All,

A few days ago SSH just failed on me, out of the blue.

Everytime I start ssh (/etc/init.d/ssh start), this appears in the auth.log

Feb 25 13:50:44 porky sshd[453]: fatal: daemon() failed: Success

I can run ssh in debug mode (sshd -d) or by telling it not to detach
(sshd -D) and it runs fine. It just when it tried to daemonise itself that
it fails, as you can see by the log files. Other processes such as syslogd
start/stop fine.

Any suggestions?
