Hmm... I have Debian 3.1 on VMWare with sftp dated Nov. 2004:

  -rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 61164 2004-11-29 00:33 /usr/bin/sftp

It seems that the version does not have the problem of "ECHO" but
has the problem of "seek".  Thus it does not work with "noseek"
MountOption without the patch (The only machine I have which have no
"seek" problem is my iMac with MacOSX10.2).

 | MOUNT="/* sftp://server/* noseek"
 |With the modifcation to bsd-openpty.c, you can get rid of the prompt
