As I said in a private (because I forgot to cc the list) message if you
upgrade sshd and don't test it before logging out then you deserve what
you get :-)
Ben pointed out that it's a personal preference thing, and he's right.
While it's really easy to restart it yourself if that's what you want
it's too late if you didn't want to.
So, how about:
# Check for running sshd and start if not running
if [ -f $piddir/sshd.pid ]
if ps -p \$pid | grep sshd >/dev/null
echo "sshd already running (pid \$pid)."
echo "Starting sshd."
