Perhaps at this point you want to tell the list how you configured/compiled
openss{h,l}.  Seeing the exact command lines can give us hints.

Also, describing your system exactly can help, since we run openssh on
all kinds of systems.  I am running it on Solaris 2.6, 2.7, and Redhat
Linux 5.2, 6.0, 6.1, 6.2beta installed from customized rpms that do
not use rsaref.

Part of the debugging is provided by openssh, but in your case you may
need the mailinglist as well.  But I think more info about your setup
is needed.

It certainly is not flaky, only the porting to various platforms
requires smoothing out.

Are you talking about RH=Redhat ?  If that is the case, what does
openssh have to do with RedHat?
