              This is a problem with ssh2 (ssh2-nox11- Secure shell client and server for V.2 SSH protocol).
It seems broken under the (my?) amd64 arch (nocona).

#ssh localhost -p 23 -l apn
apn at localhost's password:
buffer_get_ret: trying to get more bytes 1 than in buffer 0
buffer_get_char_ret: buffer_get_ret failed
buffer_get_char: buffer error

The source of the problem seems situated in /usr/src/crypto/openssh/buffer.c
              Everytime I try to start a ssh2 session.
