Bug#295731: ssh fails to bind link-scope IPv6 addresses

You must *ALWAYS* specify the interface ("scope ID" in IPv6 terminology) 
when using link-local addresses. SSH handles them fine, for instance:

On the server side:
ListenAddress fe80::2xx:xxff:fexx:xxxx%eth0

On the client side:
$ ssh fe80::2xx:xxff:fexx:xxxx%eth1

This assumes the bind address belongs to eth0 on the server, and the 
client is attached to the server via its eth1 interface.

It works fine for me, I think this bug should be closed.
