A colleague is reporting a problem with dropbear 0.48, he's loosing the 
connection after about 8 hours and sees the following error

Hm, dispatch protocol error: type 20, plen 176
dispatch_protocol_error: rekeying is not supported

The client is very elderly, OpenSSH 2.5.2p2, is there some incompatibility 
with it?
