It's really hard to say. I know first hand that an opkg upgrade to 
testing can cause this. The original poster was having other issues 
aswell however.

I'd say if your problems aren't intermittent then you may just have a 
bad upgrade. I'm tempted to think the dropbear problem is back aswell, 
as I overwrote all config files, the default a while back prevented ssh 
access except for localhost? or something silly. I remember having to 
modify the startup script via the om terminal app. Either way, I think 
using a testing image before opkg upgrading via testing is probably a 
better option. I haven't tried the FDOM script ... at all ... or FDOM 
for that matter ... but I imagine it would apply to testing?
