libssh2_sftp_stat_ex returns zero filesize

I am using the most recent version of libssh2 and am having a problem
trying to retrieve the file size of a remote file via the
libssh2_sftp_stat_ex function. I can successfully read the file using the
sftp.c example program; however, when I attempt to retrieve the file stats
I receive a file size of zero in the LIBSSH2_SFTP_ATTRIBUTES argument. The
return code from the libssh2_sftp_stat_ex function indicates success.

The remote server I am hitting is running SFTP version 3. I am running
libssh2 on ubuntu maverick.

Any insight would be most appreciated.
