I don't see why one needs to run ssh-agent as onesself on the server.
If you aren't planning to use RSAAuthentication, ssh-agent isn't necessary,
as I understand it. Anyway, it's a client-side thing, I believe. It just
handles the tedium of authenticating you via RSA to the server?
Also, why run sshd from .xinitrc? Best to run it from your various startup
Can you log in from the server to the server?
Most importantly, what does 'ssh -v' say? Ssh -v is your friend. :-)
