Are you using the RPM version of OpenSSH?

If yes, could you send me the output of "rpm -qa | sort"? This will
help me determine whether the problem is caused by a library

Could you also try rebuilding from the .src.rpm?

"rpm --rebuild openssh-2.5.1p2-1.src.rpm", install the result and see
if you can elicit the same problem.
