Description of problem:
When trying to connect with konqueror via sftp on any ssh server - openssh as
well as ssh - an error message is shown after about a minute that says

> An error occured while loading sftp://user@some.host.tld
> Could not connect to host localhost

and a message window pops up saying

> Error encountered while talking to ssh.

Connecting via command line works w/o problems.

I'm using ssh 3.2.3 and kdebase-3.1-13.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run konqueror
2. try connecting to a server via sftp://user@some.host.tld
3. wait about a minute.

Actual Results:  
- Konqueror shows:
> An error occured while loading sftp://user@some.host.tld
> Could not connect to host localhost

- A message pops up:
> Error encountered while talking to ssh.

Expected Results:  Konqueror should display the contents of $user's home
directory on $some.host.tld.

Additional info:

I replaced OpenSSH with ssh 3.2.3 (www.ssh.com). Nothing else changed.

Can't reproduce it on KDE 3.4.2 on FC 4.
