 Closer examination shows this was totaly wrong - it is not ED25519 host keys
 that are a problem, but that the new ssh does not read ~/.ssh/known_hosts*
 at all, because the path is broken during tilde expansion:
 debug3: expanded UserKnownHostsFile '~/.ssh/known_hosts' -> '/home/martin/ssh/known_hosts'
 (note "/ssh/" instead of "/.ssh/")
 ... and so all hosts in /etc/ssh/known_hosts work fine, while the ones only
 recorded in the user file fail verification.
