No - the openssl update that broke it was mid-2010. It is hit or miss. Are you 
accessing ssh on a 'high' port. I have experienced the problem the most on 
non-standard ports.

For some reason I have it working on opensuse 11.3 kde3, but it is broken on 
the 11.4 release. (they are built from the same kde code-- so that leaves some 
issue with the kio and the new openssl version)

I have a complete write-up on the issue from the opensuse list. Bottom line, 
it's a kde3 kio issue. In Trinity or suse 11.4 kde3 I can open konsole and use 
sftp from the command line to high ports just fine, but the kio for file 
open/save, konqueror, etc.. throws the "Error encountered talking to ssh" error.

I can work around the issue with fish:// for now, but the sftp kio still needs 
to be fixed. :)
