old and new ssh packages have same file as %config.
yet as result of that transaction:

1. warning: /etc/ssh/sshd_config saved as /etc/ssh/sshd_config.rpmsave
2. warning: /etc/ssh/sshd_config created as /etc/ssh/sshd_config.rpmnew

resulting /etc/ssh/sshd_config not present at all!

haven't seen such issue for quite long time!
