Apple Update Breaks SSH

The latest security update from Apple broke ssh for me and, apparently, many others:

mark@dijkstra:~$ ssh
Bus error

Update:
Looks like this is due to an incompatibility with Instant Hijack from Rogue Amoeba. Disabling this software restores ssh functionality. Thanks to Adrian for pointing this out.

Update #2:
As if there was any doubt that Rogue Amoeba was awesome, they have already fixed this in AirFoil 3.1.3. Quoting the site:

Updated Instant Hijack to 2.0.3 – fixes a crash in ssh and related commands when using Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) with Apple Security Update 2008-002

Update #3:
Full details on the fix are available on Rogue Amoeba’s blog here. Thanks for the link, Paul.
