I've had no problems with either ssh or sshd on sgimips and I've had one 
of my sgi's running a NEW_TOOLCHAIN build for a long time (and it's used
as my main mips devel box so I ssh into/out of it quite frequently).  Make
sure if you installed a new ssh (maybe just sshd?) that you have the `rnd' 
pseudo device in your kernel configuration, especially given that your
problem relates to random-number generation.
