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.
