sftp:// protocol no longer works in KDE 4.4 on lucid

Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdebase-workspace

When using Dolphin on KDE 4.4b1 on Lucid, the sftp:// KIO doesn't work anymore. Attempting to enter a URL with sftp:// causes Dolphin (or Konqueror) to throw an "Invalid Protocol" error. This worked just fine on 4.3.

[11:55:59] <JontheEchidna> yofel: yeah, they switched to using libssh for sftp and we're still working on the Main Inclusion Report for libssh
[11:56:27] <JontheEchidna> once it gets a security review we'll be able to build the ssh kio slave

Fix released to lucid. (Will be a bit before it actually shows up due to a few build issues)

I know this is kind of OT, but what exactly is up with the build system right now? Everything seems to be failing with LD errors.

In essence, a mesa (OpenGL) upload moved a library where the linkers couldn't find it.

Works successfully for me after upgrade to KDE 4.4 RC1 on Karmic.

SFTP works better, but still on certain servers it doesn't and I get the following error:

kex error : did not find one of algos aes256-cbc,aes192-cbc,aes128-cbc,blowfish-cbc,3des-cbc in list aes128-ctr,aes256-ctr,arcfour256,arcfour for encryption client->server

This is using public/private keys.

SFTP from a shell works just fine.
