Cannot start Dropbear

    My dropbear frequently stops running. When I try to restart the service, it leaves the following log.

    Feb 22 21:54:04 myrt authpriv.info dropbear[4224]: Premature exit: Bad buf_getptr

    Once this happens, the only solution is re-flashing firmware.
    Changing configuration or executing from a console doesn't solve this problem.

    Anyone know the reason?

    EDIT: My firmware version is tomato-K26USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.7495.1MIPSR2-Toastman-VLAN-RT-VPN. This problem also occurred when I used tomato-K26USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.7495MIPSR2-Toastman-VLAN-RT-BETA-VPN.
