Well, I started seeing it some two or three months ago, and it could

Seems unlikely: Even forcibly killing and restarting sshd doesn't
restore it to sanity -- pfinet needs to be restarted fist, and only
afterwards restarting sshd helps.

In my case, the screen session also becomes partially disfunctional
(when trying to create a new window it says that it can't find the
shell...) -- I guess that's related to the fact that my home directory
is on NFS, and thus also affected by pfinet going bonkers.

The problem seems related to network load somehow: When doing a larger
upgrade, it's sure to break while downloading the packages. (I seldom
saw the problem occuring in other situations than apt downloading
