sshd: buffer_get trying to get more bytes than in buffer

I've noticed that one of my users logging in via ssh from one particular IP
always causes this message to appear in auth.log:

Apr 20 15:43:18 heerold sshd[18766]: fatal: buffer_get: trying to get more bytes 4 than in buffer 0

The same user logs in from several different IP-s and the message only
appears when he logs in from one particular IP. This leads me to believe
that it might be just a quirk in the SSH client software he uses on this
particular PC, but I just wanted to confirm that it's not actually an
indication of Something Evil in progress.

The OS is 4.7-RELEASE-p9 with base system sshd.
