Apple Update Breaks SSH

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

mark@dijkstra:~$ ssh
Bus error

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.
