I'm not sure about that, I'm still suspecting a screwy syslog.conf.  The 
FreeBSD sshd_config file generally has everything commented out, and it's 
assumed that the values there are the defaults.

You can try this on something safe, but at some point I noticed that 
OpenSSH does not kill off/restart it's children when you HUP the parent 
process.  Very handy for situations like this.
