Seems to be working fine here. I am a bit curious however - this seems to be a version regression from what was in 5.9 Standard - it replaces openssl-0.9.8f-i486-1. In the same way, openssl-solibs seems to be a regression - 5.9 Standard originally had openssl-solibs-0.9.8f-i486-1 installed.

Thanks for pointing this Paul, I found it weird too, but looks like this are the packages SW is using. Without them I was unable to make the new openssh to work. The old openssh package is affected by a security advisore. I should take a deeper look into this.
Thanks again.

With uelsk8s we found the origin of the mistake. openssl-0.9.8g will be available soon. This fixes some security advisories on the 0.9.8e and 0.9.8f versions. More info here: http://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20071012.txt
Since security is involved, would be great if Paul and may be other experienced users can test this soon. Please let me know about any issue and I will try to solve it promptly.
Thanks!

Tested openssh, ospenssl and openssl-solibs latest versions. All working fine here (I do a fair bit of remote server admin using ssh).

I had a bit of a problem updating with Gslapt - it complained about an md5sum misssmatch on the openssh package. Used slapt-get to download and it went straight through.

Doh...  Thanks for the md5 tip.  I may know what's up with that.

I forgot to mention that I think I worked out the md5 error earlier today.  Can anyone confirm?

Just installed to a fresh SOHO install, worked fine. I had, of course, forgotten that the files were in the local cache, but I think (?) I would still have got the warning when attempting to update with Gslapt if the problem was still there....

Thanks Paul, I too have installed it fine, but couldn't be certain about the cache from a prior install.
