I set up the same versions (server:OpenSSH_6.6p1, OpenSSL 1.0.1s  1
Mar 2016, client: OpenSSH_7.3p1, OpenSSL 1.0.1s  1 Mar 2016) on Linux
to try to reproduce it but failed.

Can you tell me more about the server?  You said it's Solaris, but is
it SPARC or x86?  What OpenSSL version is it?

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