--- Comment #1 from Darren Tucker <dtucker at zip.com.au> ---
The mechanism sshd currently uses to perform the password change is to
exec /bin/passwd on the tty of the logged in user.  An sftp conection
has no pty on the server side, so that's not possible in that case.

The reasons it's done that way are complicated, I will elaborate over
on bug #2796.
