The patch made no difference for me (although it still seems like a good idea).

I took a closer look at the logs and the problem appears to be that all of the
commands time out before providing any entropy, eg:

debug3: Reading output from 'uptime'
debug3: Time elapsed: 1073 msec
debug2: Command 'uptime' timed out

I don't see what ssh-rand-helper can do about that aside from upping the timeout.

Stephen, I suggest you ask your admins to install Sun patch 112438-03 (assuming
the box is a SPARC).  Installing it by the book requires a reboot, but there are
instructions around for loading the module and creating the device nodes by hand.
