Having upgraded my kernel to linux-image-generic-lts-quantal, I find I cannot connect to my machine from a Windows machine, it works fine from other Linux machines. From SecureCRT I get the following error:

The client has disconnected from the server.  Reason:
Identifier string was not received, was too long, or contained invalid content: ()

From putty I get:

Incoming packet was garbled on decrytion

To get to linux-image-generic-lts-quantal I did:

apt-get update ; apt-get dist-upgrade
reboot
apt-get install linux-image-generic-lts-quantal

From a linux machine I see this:
