As the implementer of the ssh functionality, I'd like to know more
about what happened here.  Does ssh still immediately close the
connection?  If so, can you try 'ssh -v admin at NEWIP' and report back
the output?

On the v3.0 hardware with limited RAM, the connection closes
immediately because the DH handshake fails due to a memory allocation
failure.  But with v3.1 hardware there is plenty of RAM.
