[problem starting sshd on AIX via rc.tcpip and startsrc]

For the benefit of the list archives and/or Google: this was due to the 
$3 variable being poluted elsewhere (not sure where) and still being set 
when the "start sshd" line was reached ("start" is a shell function that 
takes up to 3 arguments).  It was resolved by changing the sshd line in 
/etc/rc.tcpip from:

start /usr/local/sbin/sshd "$src_running"


start /usr/local/sbin/sshd "$src_running" ""

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