This is the cause of the problem! I can connect fine to my APC UPS now this is commented out. With the router, right after the password is entered, there's this error message:
PTY allocation request failed on channel 0
Then I get the router prompt, and everything is fine from then on.
I suspect this issue will come up more often as more people use 5.1p1 with vendor-supplied sshd servers in various pieces of hardware.
