To be pedantic, draft-ietf-secsh-filexfer-13.txt defines SFTP protocol
version 6; libssh2 only implements up to SFTP protocol version 3, which is
covered by draft-ietf-secsh-filexfer-{01,02}.txt -- which do not the
mentioned text (it first appears in draft-ietf-secsh-filexfer-06.txt).

But as you say, it's not a big deal; I've already fix the bug in mod_sftp.
