|RSE ssh connections FAIL unless remotes' sshd_config has weak Ciphers/MACs ? Why? [message #1696261]

I'm setting up Eclipse Luna as a new IDE for a small team.|
It's an all-Linux environment, and site-to-site comms are typically SSH, with ciphers, macs & kexalgorithms tightened up -- using elliptical ciphers and higher bit algos in general.
On the Eclipse end of things, I've setup its Remote System Explorer (RSE) toolkit for access to/across multiple sites.
I've found that unless I 'dumb down' the remotes' sshd_config, to include weaker "Ciphers+=aes128-ctr" & "MACs+=hmac-md5", Eclipse RSE fails on the connection.
With those ^^ config opts, the connection opens without error; without those opts, no connection.
I suspect (?) this has to do with Java's encryption layer / config, but don't know.
Is this a missing/wrong CONFIG issue on my end, or a limitation of Eclipse?
