The "Ridiculous amount of stuff" was sent out as atachments but I guess
somehow it ended up inline. Sorry for that.
Anyway, I tried to disable all McAfee options (Virus Protection, Spyware
protection, SystemGuard Protection, Script scanning and email) but to no
avail. With the previous version of McAfee (version 8 I think) I was
able to diable enough to get it working.
When I run ssh-agent with the -d flag (which also keeps it in the
foregound), it works. Only when ssh-agent is started as daemon does the
problem show up. Looks like a privilege problem to me but I will keep
