  Gerrit, you can't possibly mean what you're saying there.  Kernel mode and
User mode code are entirely different; it's nonsensical to suggest that one
program could run in either mode.  Do you perhaps mean "run as SYSTEM user / run
as non-SYSTEM user"?  

  Anyway, if running as SYSTEM it writes to /var/log/sshd.log, but running as an
ordinary user it fails, then it's almost certainly the case that sshd.log is
owned by SYSTEM user because it was first created by SYSTEM user.  If that's the
case "chmod a+rwx /var/log/sshd.log" should help.

  Also, nobody's told Sean to take a look in the windows event log yet, and see
if there was any sign of life there.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
