This is the point where sshd re-execs itself to handle the new connection.
I suspect that this is failing for because of some change that occurred
when you installed the software (PATH, maybe?)

You can prevent the re-exec by adding "-r" to sshd's command line.

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
