In my OP, the last line of output prior to the errors was

0.134  ssh implementation is OpenSSH

fwiw, that did NOT lead me to suspect OpenSSH, but rather something 'after'.

since it was clear, apparently, to others that it WAS openssh-related, perhaps I should've know better.

once I did look at the detailed SSH output, testing an SSH-session, NOT the bzr-session, then I was able to figure out where the problem was.

so, simply from my perspective, knowing more clearly that the problem was in the ssh communication, and that the way to track it down was by testing the ssh connection would have been, in this case, 'more useful'.
