12.2(33)SXI2 on 6500/sup720
Twisted version is either 2.5.0 or 8.2.0 - same results with both.
It does seem to be an IOS bug; it doesn't happen against some of other
other kit (e.g. 3750s running 12.2(46)SE)

There is none; it's using plain defaults i.e. boot the box, run a
"crypto key generate rsa", SSH is enabled.
Sigh. I am really not looking forward to opening a TAC case here.
"What SSH client are you running?"
"Is that a windows application"
"No it's an SSH library"
"We support Putty"
"It's a library"
