[2008.12] ssh instability

i too have stability issues with the ssh connection.
i had them with dropbear (2007.2 and debian) really bad, and still have  
them with standard sshd on the fr, though far less frequent.
mostly i experience it when doing apt-operations which take a bit longer,  
so i somehow suspect a timeout issue.

i've seem the total disappearance of usb0 only once -- and then the usbnet  
module was gone.
unplugging/replugging the fr caused reload of the module and everything  
was fine again.

maybe you should try to manually load
