[PLUG] ssh: Too many authentication failures *RESOLVED*

It appears the problem was too many different protocols being used to
authenticate. Taking a clue from a comment on another list where I posed
the question I commented out of sshd_config...

GSSAPIAuthentication yes
GSSAPICleanupCredentials yes

Then set retries back to 2 (I had bumped it to 3 to allow me to tunnel
in) and...

/etc/init.d/sshd reload

...and I can tunnel again. I wonder why this ever worked with retries at
2 before? Dunno... it's an FM.
