I open two ssh (and sftp) connections to two different servers. Than I fetch a file (same path on both servers) from each server. The content of the files on each server is different. (In this case a 40 char hash value) - but when printing out the results the content is always the one from the first sftp connection.

Not sure if this is the same as: 

Test script:
$ssh1 = ssh2_connect('', 22);
ssh2_auth_password($ssh1, 'user1', 'password1');
$sftp1 = ssh2_sftp($ssh1);
print_r(ssh2_sftp_stat($sftp1, '/var/www/some/path/REVISION'));
$stream1 = fopen('ssh2.sftp://' . (int)$sftp1 . '/var/www/some/path/REVISION', 'r');       
$content1 = '';
while (!feof($stream1)) {
    $content1 .= fread($stream1, 8192);
var_dump($content1); // correct result

// If this unset is used, result is as expected

$ssh2 = ssh2_connect('', 22);
ssh2_auth_password($ssh2, 'user2', 'password2');
$sftp2 = ssh2_sftp($ssh2);
print_r(ssh2_sftp_stat($sftp2, '/var/www/some/path/REVISION'));
$stream2 = fopen('ssh2.sftp://' . (int)$sftp2 . '/var/www/some/path/REVISION', 'r');       
$content2 = '';
while (!feof($stream2)) {
    $content2 .= fread($stream2, 8192);
var_dump($content2); // WRONG result (shows content from server1)

Expected result:
Contents of variables $content1 and $content2 should be different.

Actual result:
Contents of variables $content1 and $conten2 are the same. ($content2 is wrong)

Indeed, this is likely a duplicate of bug #72988, which is fixed
as of ssh2 1.1.  Or can you still reproduce this issue?
