I tried the above. 'ssh -v ...' still produces results quoted above and
I see in /var/log/messages:

Feb 29 20:43:54 localhost lshd[6959]: lshd: Failed to cd to `/tmp/.X11-unix' 
(errno = 2): No such file or directory 
Feb 29 20:43:54 localhost lshd[6959]: lshd: Updating utmp for login failed 
(errno = 2): No such file or directory 
Feb 29 20:45:35 localhost lshd[6959]: lshd: Updating utmpx for logout failed 
(errno = 2): No such file or directory 
Feb 29 20:45:35 localhost lshd[6959]: lshd: write_buffer: Attempt to write data 
to closed buffer. 
Feb 29 20:45:35 localhost lshd[6959]: lshd: Disconnect for reason 11: 
disconnected by user 
Feb 29 20:45:47 localhost lshd[6959]: lshd: Failed to cd to `/tmp/.X11-unix'

Feb 29 20:45:47 localhost lshd[6959]: lshd: Updating utmp for login failed 
(errno = 2): No such file or directory 

I tried 'sudo mkdir /tmp/.X11-unix' which changed /var/log/messages to:

Feb 29 20:54:04 localhost lshd[6959]: lshd: Updating utmp for login failed 
(errno = 2): No such file or directory 
Feb 29 20:54:09 localhost lshd[6959]: lshd: Updating utmpx for logout failed 
(errno = 2): No such file or directory 
Feb 29 20:54:09 localhost lshd[6959]: lshd: write_buffer: Attempt to write data 
to closed buffer. 
Feb 29 20:54:09 localhost lshd[6959]: lshd: Disconnect for reason 11: 
disconnected by user 

and 'ssh -v ...' still produces the results quoted above.
