User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17-14 i686)

I used 'up2date -u' to upgrade my rh7 boxen.  One of the packages upgraded
was openssh, to version 2.5.2p2.  After the upgrade, sshd was no longer

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with a RH7 box running openssh prior to 2.5.2p2-1.7.
2. Log in using ssh.
3. Use up2date (in the just-logged-in window) to upgrade openssh.
4. Try to login again using ssh.

Actual Results:  'Connection refused.'

Expected Results:  Normal login sequence.

Also note that running `/etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd start' did not restart sshd. 
I had to manually run /usr/sbin/sshd.

This bug is particularly serious if  the only way to login is ssh or the
console, and the console is a long way away.

I suspect that init.d/sshd is finding the sshd process managing the login
session, assuming that this process is the sshd server, and so not starting
the server.
