[maemo-users] [maemo-users] Dropbear-client broken?

I have just set up ssh on my N770, using dropbear. However, in the list 
of installed applications the dropbear-client is marked as broken. This 
seem not to affect ssh-server though, as there is no problems accessing 
the N770 from my laptop.

In the terminal, I get the following:

/home/user # dpkg -l | grep dropbear
rF  dropbear-client                                
0.48.1-1mh4                  lightweight SSH2 client
ii  dropbear-server                                
0.48.1-1mh4                  lightweight SSH2 server


/home/user # apt-get install dropbear-client

Anyone recognizes this, or have advice on how to solve it?
