I would suggest upgrading to the latest version of gftp at
http://www.gftp.org/gftp-test.tar.bz2. The SSH support is much better in this

Depending on my time situation, I'm planning on putting out a release candidate
of 2.0.18 really soon. I still have a few other issues to work out before I do
this. If anyone has time, please test the above code. Also, please file any bug
reports with GNOME's Bugzilla instead of the mailinglist. It's much easier for
me to track bugs using Bugzilla.
