It also fails on an even simpler example.  I am logged on as root, and
the ssh client and server are the same machine:

suse-server # /usr/bin/ssh -f -L 5600:localhost:25 localhost sleep 100
suse-server # telnet localhost 5600
Trying ::1...
channel 3: open failed: connect failed: Connection refused
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
