I'm not sure why but output from sshd is missing everything after the
re-exec.  If you add "-e" to sshd command line to force it to continue
to write to stderr after it re-execs itself.  I don't know why that
happened (I have not been able to reproduce that or the original
problem on a recent Fedora).

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