Hi Jason,

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

able to diable enough to get it working.

It is for version 8.0i (which is what I am running), but have you

suggests running sshd with '-D -r'

Good luck!

By the way, have you tried to contact McAfee support?
