Both ssh and sshd  should use sha1 in preference to md5. This is
currently not the case. It would be nicer for sha1 to be the default,
even if it just stops the audit people from saying 'bad bad - using
that flawed md5'.

I acknowledge that the control is totally in the ssh client end however
reordering both isn't that hard.

patch attached performs this function.
