Its OpenSSL version 0.9.5 on both the Linux and Solaris sides of the
connection. If theres something better to run, let me know. 

Could the identity files cause an error like this, even though its
talking about the known_hosts file ? I wonder. I supplied the identity
files to the other side of the connection, mostly to make it easier for
them. Maybe they got currupted in transmition.
