I guess this has something to do with the new permissions on various
files, but I'm not sure which ones.

Off the top of my head for the standard installation:


When you try to debug the sshd, IIR these are the files that must be
chown'ed to the admin user that runs sshd from the terminal.  Running in
debug mode (either from the terminal or via sshd_config) should produce
messages which file or directory sshd is choking on.

I just checked /var/log/sshd.log. (I hadn't thought to do that before.) The last message in it is, "/var/empty must be owned by root and not group or world-writable." So the problem seems to be that /var/empty appears to sshd to be group writable under the latest snapshot. This is the "downside" that Corinna mentioned. What needs to be done to /var/empty to fix this?
