Most likely ssh was trying to bind to the same port on both ip4 and ip6, which
would cause that error.
I also did the *recommended* google search and got this;

If you're not using IPv6, just disable it in sshd_config:

#ListenAddress ::

(or bind the ListenAddress to a specific IP)


Oops... Now I deprived you of finding that for yourself!

Shame on me!  ;-P

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
