Cannot connect to OpenSSH 1.2.3 running on HP-UX 11.00

The server daemon writes the following error message to the syslog
(running on a HP 9000/712/80 box):

| Mar 28 18:01:54 <server> sshd[755]: Did not receive ident string from <client-ip>.

Any suggestions?  This happens if I connect using OpenSSH from the
same box or another one (running the Linux version of OpenSSH).

BTW: OpenSSH didn't compile out-of-the-box. I had to disable PAM
support (HP-UX 11.00 seems to lack pam_getenvlist) and manually add
"-lsec" to the list of libraries.  In addition, EGD behaves a bit
strange (it dies almost instantly when started from the rc scripts).
