I made a simple change to the SSHd config, but it never get picked up by the SSH Daemon.

/etc/init.d/ssh restart

no error is reported, any idea what it may be, or where i can look?

The problem seems to be the init script.

you can use

service ssh restart 

and the config change is picked up as it should.
