It works fine using the -1 switch to ssh according to
http://www.debian.org/security/2002/dsa-134 -- problem here was that it
was set in the config to use version one for this particular machine,
but it seemed to be ignored. Whatever the problem, using protocol 2 keys
seems to have sorted it out.

Agreed. I've been left second guessing implementing privsep all day
(though I haven't had any problems yet, apart from a few people asking
why compression is disabled). I saw the mail saying someone had found a
root sploit with privsep enabled, but have heard nothing else about it.
I don't know whether to believe it or not. But, it kinda leaves you with
either a root sploit without privsep or a possible one with it. I like the
idea of privsep and haven't had any problems with it so far, so I think
I'll be leaving it enabled for the time being.
By the way, just for information purposes, we're running kernel 2.2.20
on debian with openssh installed using apt-get from testing. I haven't
tried compression yet.
