openssh-server.i686 0:5.3p1-19.fc12 fails to start

Description of problem:
After an update from openssh-server.i686 0:5.2p1-31.fc12 to the newest stable packet the sshd binary fails to start.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fails every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install openssh-server
2. /etc/init.d/sshd start
sshd starten: Auto configuration failed
3078874760:error:0E07606D:configuration file routines:MODULE_RUN:module initialization error:conf_mod.c:235:module=engines, value=openssl_engines, retcode=-1
sshd starten: [ OK ]
The sshd_config is the default one.
On another Fedora Installation i have it works fine, so maybe its a Hardware related thing. The Machine it fails on is a Intel Atom.
I fixed it for the moment with:
yum downgrade openssh openssh-server openssh-clients
It seems to be a problem with openssl engine configuration. The newest version of openssh read openssl's config.
Try to consult "man 5 config".
/etc/pki/tls/openssl.cnf was outdated.
