Clueless! sshd ONLY fails at system startup (XP/SP3) ... minor correction

visit (ssh) the "old station" (XP) for info that I am missing.

(both machines are behind a firewall - rest assured)

"Suddenly" (yesterday?) I noticed that the "sshd daemon" fails;
it is started at system startup (i.e. an automatic service).

Ahem ... it should have rephrased that ... however, from the error
report in the sshd.log, it should be clear that the daemon fails as
soon as it receives its first "ssh" request ... (and not before).


The message in the sshd.log:
