ssh-agent fails to create socket

After the latest upgrade (yesterday) I found that ssh-agent no longer works. It 
looks like if fails to create a socket. Here is an illustration:

gustav@Crawley 503 $ ssh-agent bash -l
gustav@Crawley 501 $ ls -r /tmp
gustav@Crawley 502 $ !!
ls -r /tmp
gustav@Crawley 503 $ env | grep SSH
gustav@Crawley 504 $ 

So: it has created the directory in /tmp, but then something goes wrong, 
probably it can't make the socket, so it cleans up and removes the directory. My 

ssh version numbers are as follows:

autossh 1.4b-1 OK
libssh2-devel 1.2.7-1 OK
libssh2_1 1.2.7-1 OK
openssh 5.9p1-1 OK
