	Interesting... I didn't mention that the transport is... Not FLAKEY,
but SLOW. (Satellite on the remote end). How did you come to that 
determination? (Just for the future so I can see it in debug others might
send me). I don't have much packet loss :

	The client is old, admitted, FreeBSD 4.10, but the server was
just installed, FreeBSD 5.4! 

	I forgot to mention that it stalls after :

debug1: next auth method to try is keyboard-interactive


	I was hoping for a way to fix it, its a 9 hour drive to the beachhouse
