Try moving the host keys and generating new ones (particularly the SSH V1
ssh_host_key which was not shown in my debugging) for a test.  That would
be my guess.

If it's not that, you can use gdb to set a breakpoint for that line of
code, then use "bt" to get a stack trace to fund out where in the code the
failing call is coming from:

# gdb -q ./sshd
(gdb) set args -t
(gdb) break buffer.c:124
Breakpoint 1 at 0x8062bfc: file ../buffer.c, line 124.
(gdb) run
[wait for failure]
(gdb) bt

You could try updating those.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
