Minor 11.2.0 update problems

I updated my XO-1 to 11.2.0 today.  I ran into a few minor issues that I 
thought I would mention.

/etc/ssh/ssh_host_*key* were not saved during the update.  I did not have 
a copy of them anywhere so I had to make new keys.  That is a bit of an 
annoyance since I have to remove the old key from each machine that I have 
sshed into the laptop from.

sshd does not start on boot.  As I am not a redhat person it took a little 
bit of time to find that I wanted to run 'chkconfig sshd on'.

Any warning on sshd changes would have been nice.

I did check http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Ssh_into_the_XO to make sure this 
was not already documented there.

I suspect that the order of things has changed.  It appears that Sugar is 
starting up before /media/* is being mounted.  I had moved the larger 
activities to an SD card and now they no longer show up when the laptop 
boots.  After the GUI is completely drawn I can ctrl-alt-backspace to kill 
X.  When it comes back up all of the activities are available.  I think 
this means that moving /home/olpc to the SD card is out of the question.

These were not huge issues for me but they were different from every other 
upgrade I have done in the past on my XO.
