it's like 3.7.1 doesn't have all the changes in it?! If I'm right, and
others have missed this, there may be a lot of folks with a false sense of

Tom,
not all others missed this.  See OpenPKG Security Advisory
http://www.openpkg.org/security/OpenPKG-SA-2003.040-openssh.html

check the CVS timeline at
http://cvs.openpkg.org/rlog?f=openpkg-src/openssh/openssh.spec and see
the associated checkins referenced below. It's worth looking at the
comments in the patches.
