I get that too, but I also get the "You've successfully authenticated, but
GitHub does not provide shell access" message. I think the error is at their
end and can be safely ignored since you don't need a PTY for your no shell
access anyway. If it didn't happen last week, they probably upgraded the ssh
version on the server or tweaked a config setting related to error reporting
or something like that.
Ah, yes: it appears to be expected behaviour - and quite a FAQ!
