If the file ~/.ssh/config exists and no matter contains or not an alias for SSH connection then it does not possible to open SFTP link. The error text is:

Cannot chdir to "/sftp://user@host"
(17) sftp: an error occurred while reading ~/.ssh/config: File exists

After erasing the file it's possible to connect to remote host via sftp.

Steps to reproduce:
# Have file ~/.ssh/config
# run mc
# try to connect any ssh host via menu (F9->Right->SFTP Link)
# get above error

Expected result
# working SFTP VFS
