Yes, sorry.  I have no way to fix this properly because it happens in
"prerm upgrade", before the new version gets to do anything.  I
documented it in the changelog, though, and it only affects upgrades
from one version that was in unstable for less than a day:

openssh (1:7.2p2-7) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Don't stop the ssh-session-cleanup service on upgrade (closes: #832155).
    This may cause SSH sessions to be killed on upgrade to *this* version if
    you had previously installed 1:7.2p2-6.  Sorry!  If your session is
    killed, you can recover using "dpkg --unpack" on this openssh-server
    .deb, followed by "dpkg --configure -a".
  * Recommend libpam-systemd from openssh-server.  It's a much better
    solution than the above for systemd users, but I'm wary of depending on
    it in case I cause an assortment of exciting dependency problems on
    upgrade for non-systemd users.
