Anyone ever come across a linux server host key changing with out a
reboot, sshd restart, change in negotiating (SSHv1, SSHv2), and
different DNS name or IP address?

I have a server on RHEL4.4 that changed its host key.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 4)


uptime 944 days

Started getting the eavesdropping message from a login that is
supposed to login w/o a password.
And always did before today.
