Hi All...

ssh -L nnn:localhost:nnnn

breaks when the remote (sshd) machine is running 1.3.6-2. The previous 
(1.3.5-3) version is ok. For example:

user@LOCAL ~
$ ssh -L 5901:localhost:5900 user
Enter passphrase for key '/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa':
Last login: Tue Dec  4 09:25:32 2001 from user

user@REMOTE ~
$ channel 2: open failed: connect failed: Bad address

The error message appears when I locally try to connect to the port. This 
test was done with Win2k SP2 for both machines. I was using VNC to connect 
to the port.
