Description of problem:
When I use gftp to make an SSH connection between two machines, it
complains that it cant find sftpserv and fails.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run gftp
2.select ssh
3.enter username, password, etc

Actual Results:  Gftp spits out the following error:

Opening SSH connection to volcan
dmk@volcan's password: 
bash: sftpserv: command not found

Error: Received wrong init string from server
Waiting 30 seconds until trying to connect again

Expected Results:  sftp connection to other machine

Additional info:

SSH connections work to the machines involved without gftp.

I believe this problem is on the SSH server, not in gftp. openssh-servers is
supposed to contain sftpserv.
