I had to reboot to start sshd
I click the Acknowledge messages about SSH not started and creating SSH keys. I wait about 10 minuts, but impossible to connect with SSH.
So, I decided to restart pfSense. After restarting the SSH daemon is working.
Is it normal?
I did only the mininal configuration: serial wizard and web wizard. I activated SSH using the web interface.

Running pfSense with a 128 MByte Compact Flash.
No problem running with hard disk (same machine). sshd started without problems

I haven't tried this in a few days but it worked fine for me the last time I was able to test it.
Depending on the hardware involved generating the SSH keys can take quite a long time, it is entirely possible that the keys were not complete yet.
FYI- the newer 1.2.3-RC embedded snapshots that are based on nanobsd will require a 1GB CF.
