Thanks for the link, I didn't remember that message... But I have now
checked /etc/ssl on my system. I don't use any special PAM modules. In
/etc/ssl/certs is empty and in /etc/ssl/private there is only one
certificate which is used for secure ftp.

I also checked the old thread and it seems that this is differemt
problem. The available entropy is moving between 120-220, so it
doesn't drop to 1 and it is changing. Also I can ssh without any
visible delays...

  bYE, Marki
