As far as I can judge, according to the strace output you sent and information 
you granted, the crash occurs in the privsep monitor process somewhere in the 
key exchange code. May be somebody else in the list could either correct me or 
point more exact location of the crash. BTW, if you created the 
/var/empty/etc/localtime file populated with the content of /etc/localtime and 
configured your syslogd to use /var/empty/dev/log socket in addition to the 
standard /dev/log, you could get some output from the privsep child in one of 
your log files. That could give us some additional clue on what is going on.

    Sincerely Your, Dan.
