Description of problem:
everytime openssh starts up I get the following error in my logwatch:

--------------------- SSHD Begin ------------------------ 

Failed to bind: port 22 (Address already in use) : 1 Time(s)

---------------------- SSHD End ------------------------- 

but sshd seems to work as expected. Cannot find any problem

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start sshd with default settings

Expected Results:  this error should not be there

Additional info:

I've an eth0, an eth1 and an ppp0 interface set up

Confirmed, but only if IPv6 kernel module is loaded (which is the
default). On "service sshd restart" I see the following in

Jan  3 06:20:09 gw sshd[29213]: Server listening on :: port 22.
Jan  3 06:20:09 gw sshd[29213]: error: Bind to port 22 on
failed: Address already in use.
