If you set it the variable in the config file you enable debug logging of 

Take a look in 'man sftp_server'. I've set

Subsystem       sftp    /usr/lib64/ssh/sftp-server -l DEBUG2

and restarted sshd. I got a lot of debugging output from the sftp server.

To enable logging in libssh you have to set:

int verbosity = SSH_LOG_FUNCTIONS;
ssh_set_options(session, SSH_OPTIONS_LOG_VERBOSITY, &verbosity);

That's what we should confirm. It is possible that it is a bug in libssh.

Lets look at the logs and then we can try to create a testcase for it.
