But, of course, it would be more helpful in the long run if you would
try to track down the problem.  I'm using 5.7p1 and 5.8p1 without any
problems, as client as well as server.  If you go back to 5.6p1, you
switch off yourself from further development.  If there's some bug or
incompatibility in your setup, you will never find it.  If there's a bug
in OpenSSH, it might never be found either.
