raspbian 2014-01-07 sshd problems

I am running raspbian 2014-01-07 and every week or so my sshd stops letting me in, some complaint about verification or handshake exception maybe? I dunno I do not have the message handy. In any case this is terrible because I need to pull the plug on it, and then wind up with fs corruption.

Any known issues with sshd in this raspbian, or other ideas about what is affecting me? Thanks!

I run this version of Raspbian on an RPi which I leave running non-stop. The RPi is 'headless' and the only way I access it is via ssh. I have never experienced the problem you seem to have.

It would be useful to have the precise error message when you are denied access. Is access actually denied, or do you simply get a warning about the target's fingerprint not being as expected? Might you be clearing the stored fingerprint on the system from which you initiate the ssh call to the RPi?
