Doesn't seem to help, I am afraid. I even tried a reboot, in the
grasping at straws department. These are the additions I have made to
my stock sshd_config, so far in vain (yeah, I know, I probably really
don't want to turn on GatewayPorts):

GatewayPorts       yes
PermitTunnel       yes
AllowTcpForwarding yes

Everyone does it, even in China they don't have enough police to stop
that. For myself personally, my work would be severely impaired if I
could not get through somehow. They mainly take exception to
"subversive" content being posted on foreign websites. And I would
never admit to doing that. ;-)

I will take this opportunity to make a plug: it would sure be nice if
there were more Tor exit points in the outside world....
