Check the user's shell and make sure it's actually ksh.
It is ksh:
Localhost$ ssh server1 echo $SHELL
Localhost$ ssh server2 echo $SHELL

In that case, look for the manuals for OpenSSH 3.6.1 and 4.3 and make
sure the features you're relying on (~/.ssh/environment) are actually
available in both versions. Also, check the server configs to make
sure PermitUserEnvironment is set to yes (the default is ``no'').
