It may be an issue with your options, but our code using SFTP
would not work with libssh2 0.17, and I had to use a later
snapshot. It seems that some crucial work on libssh2 happened
shortly after the August release of version 0.17.

Snapshots are available from the website if you prefer that to
CVS access.
