sshd does not restart after upgrade

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
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
