Normal users should be user_r.  If they're going to be able to use
sysadm_r, they should be staff_r instead of user_r.

Theres two things that need to happend for sshd to work right.  The
binary has to be labeled correctly, which should have been taken care of
by rlpkg.  Then either you have it automatically start up at boot, or
manually start it using run_init.  If sshd isn't in the right context,
then people will not be able to log in.

Not sure about this one.  I can reproduce this, so I'll investigate
