/etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd should invoke sshd using its fully qualified path 
name, not just "sshd".  If you just use "sshd", then sshd cannot reload 
its config file when it receives a SIGHUP:

# kill -HUP `cat /var/run/sshd.pid`

Instead, this kills sshd.

I'm not sure which versions of the openssh-server RPM have this problem.  
My system has since been upgraded.  It definitely happened with openssh 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. kill -HUP `cat /var/run/sshd.pid`
2. ps uaxww|grep sshd

Actual Results:  You'll see that sshd is no longer running.

Expected Results:  sshd should be running.
