Well, its a thing that happens at the moment due to some minor bug. A
host discovers your hosts, sends you its own public key and a sessionkey in 
the same packet (to establish a session). Before your host is really done 
acknowledging the public key, it gets the session key and can't verify the 
signature (and drops it). Next time the other host tries, it will work, 
though. It's a known bug that has some slight impact on performance and will 
be fixed in the future.
