Yeah, looks like it's on the server end:

cygnus:/release# ssh
Connection to closed.
cygnus:/release# uname -a
NetBSD cygnus 1.5 NetBSD 1.5 (SCINTILA) #0: Wed Mar 14 17:46:27 EST 2001     gr@cygnus:/usr/src/sys/arch/macppc/compile/SCINTILA macppc

achemar:/usr/xsrc# ssh
Connection to closed.
achemar:/usr/xsrc# uname -a
NetBSD achemar 1.5S NetBSD 1.5S (SCINTILA-INSECURE) #0: Thu Mar 22 16:00:55 EST 2001      gr@achemar:/usr/src/sys/arch/macppc/compile/SCINTILA-INSECURE macppc

pserver still works (I'm doing a checkout of netbsd-1-5 using it
right now), and has frequently been more reliable for lengthy
checkouts over the past few months anyhow.
