I get similar symptoms with unison over ssh:
It worked great before SP2 (i.e. 2 hours ago).
After I installed SP2 on the client, unison/ssh just hangs.
The server has been running SP2 for over a week.
Any normal ssh sessions work fine. I'm also using ssh to forward the
IMAP port (143) to my server's port, which still works.
By adding -rshargs "-vvv" to unison, the last few lines of ssh debug
debug1: Authentication succeeded (publickey).
debug2: fd 4 setting O_NONBLOCK
debug2: fd 5 setting O_NONBLOCK
debug1: channel 0: new [client-session]
debug3: ssh_session2_open: channel_new: 0
debug2: channel 0: send open
debug1: Entering interactive session.
debug2: callback start
debug2: client_session2_setup: id 0
debug1: Sending command: unison -server
debug2: channel 0: request exec confirm 0
debug2: callback done
debug2: channel 0: open confirm rwindow 0 rmax 32768
debug2: channel 0: rcvd adjust 131072
... and nothing more happens.
For the record: My unison is 2.9.20, Win32 native, *not* the cygwin
port. cygwin and ssh were already up to date, as of 3-4 days ago.

My XP machine at work was just upgraded to SP2. Now I'm having problems
accessing a cvs repository on a linux box over ssh. Everything was working
fine until this SP2 upgrade.
I can access the cvs host via ssh normally (although in a possibly related
matter, ssh sometimes seems to be a character behind when using vi remotely --
has anyone else noticed that behavior? This was true before the SP2 upgrade).
Invoking cvs remotely without a password seems to work fine:
$ ssh user@cvshost cvs

The Concurrent Versions System (CVS) is a tool for version control.

the CVS home page at http://www.cvshome.org/ or
Pascal Molli's CVS site at http://www.loria.fr/~molli/cvs-index.html
However, if I try to issue a local cvs command (CVS_RSH=ssh, etc., nothing has
change client side or server side except the SP2 upgrade), then the command
$ cvs status myFile.txt
cvs status: warning: unrecognized response `Warning: No xauth data; using fake

Examining the process server side reveals that the cvs process is hung on

Is anyone aware of any changes in SP2 that would cause this problem? Are there
