I suspect you've merely worked around your particular problem rather
than solved it. Another configuration may now be broken.

Hard to arrange - normally the receiver is invoked by the sender. And
regardless, that happens _after_ all the ssh negotiation has happened.

I'd still be interested in your ssh-v transcripts, both working and nonworking.
