I've taken a look at the bug and though I still do not understand why exactly 
the kio_sftp code does not properly subtract out the extra buffer length in 
this case, I can confirm the bug.

Your fix is correct in that it properly implements the intent of the listed 
code comment, so it should be safe to go in. At this point I'm not sure if 
it's the actual "fix" or just a happy accident but I'm too tired to 
troubleshoot farther tonight. If no one else gets a chance to look I can 
commit and backport tomorrow night (~19 hours from now unfortunately).
