One thing to keep in mind is that if you
go from running the SSH-3DES images to a non-ssh3DES image and
issue the "wr" command then later revert to a ssh-3des
image you will be required to regenerate the host key.
This means you can easily lose your secure private
key on the router by the lack of ssh-3des availablity due to
a bug you are suffering, etc.
It would be nice if the non-ssh-3des images would play nice(r)
with the ssh-3des images IMHO.
Just a word of warning until cisco thinks this is a priority.
