NIS/ssh problem -CURRENT client to 4.8-RC2 server

Not sure where to send this one, but this used to work when the client was 
5.0-RC1.  The server hasn't been modified at all since the client was upped 

Basically, the user I'm trying to logon as only exists locally on the 
server, and via NIS on the client

aylee# uname -a
FreeBSD aylee.number6 5.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.0-CURRENT #0: Thu Mar 27 
00:57:40 ES
T 2003     root_at_aylee.number6:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/AYLEE  alpha

FreeBSD erwin.number6 4.8-RC FreeBSD 4.8-RC #2: Sun Mar 16 03:35:25 EST 
2003     root_at_erwin.number6:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/ERWIN  alpha

Logging in locally on the client is fine, as the NIS user, but I can't log 
in as the same user via ssh.
Heres the corresponding  logs from erwin (server) and aylee (client):

Mar 27 09:46:05 erwin ypserv[92]: access to master.passwd.byuid denied -- 
+ not privileged

Mar 27 09:46:04 aylee sshd[23711]: fatal: login_get_lastlog: cannot find 
account for uid[1000]
