Strange ssh/tty behaviour

I have Debian unstable on "vreemdeling" and Redhat 7.3 on "archive".

When I try to sshto archive from tty8 on vreemdeling the following
03-01-03 9:03:13 js@vreemdeling ~
zsh % ssh root@archive
Permission denied, please try again.
Permission denied, please try again.
Permission denied (publickey,password).
03-01-03 9:03:17 js@vreemdeling ~
In  /var/log/secure on archive the following entry appears:

Jan  3 09:03:17 archive sshd[20347]: Failed password for root from port 2772 ssh2
Jan  3 09:03:17 archive last message repeated 2 times
Jan  3 09:03:17 archive sshd[20347]: Connection closed by

When I ssh from any other tty on vreemdeling I have success:

03-01-03 9:03:01 js@vreemdeling ~
zsh % ssh root@archive
root@archive's password:
Last login: Fri Jan  3 08:09:27 2003 from bywoner.sun.ac.za
[root@archive-09:03:33]-#1 ~

I have tried logging out and in again on several tty's and the same
happens.  It is always from tty8 that ssh fails.

Any explanation?
