ssh connect error

buffer_get_ret: trying to get more bytes 4 than in buffer 0
buffer_get_int: buffer error

Seems to have something to do with the public key.
It helps to remove ~/.ssh/id_dsa* (or the whole ~/.ssh directory if you want to be sure).

This appeared to me only after the upgrade to Ubuntu Jaunty, I don't know if it's related or what the correct fix is.

There seems to be a matching bug report here.

Update: Apparently it's fixed by now.

Okay, interesting. Possibly I found a matching bug report, it's linked in the original post now.
