When I run libssh2-1.4.2's test clients against proftpd+mod_sftp, it works
properly. These tests were done on a Linux 2.6.28 i686 machine.

What OS/platform are you using to compile/run the libssh2 code?

This packet length, as generated by libssh2, appears to be the issue. We
will need to determine how/why libssh2 would ever generate an SSH2 packet
with such a length.
