ssh error: Error reading response length from authentication socket

Hi - I am getting the error
`Error reading response length from authentication socket'
when I ssh from my cluster to another cluster, and then back to my cluster. It doesn't seem to affect anything, but it's just annoying that it always pops up and tends to confuse new users of the cluster. I don't want to just redirect stderr to /dev/null in the scripts that do this in case another error pops up that I need to know about. If it makes any difference, I am connecting to the remote cluster through a multiplexed ssh connection from my cluster. Thanks!

One person managed to fix that by trashing and recreating their .ssh directory, so it may have something to do with your keys if any.
