Have a look into the script, right at the end.  chown is only called
if sshd has been installed as service.  Otherwise the script assumes
that sshd is going to be run from some user account in a console
window.  In that case, chown'ing to system wouldn't make much sense.

Perhaps that's the problem.  People running the script and decide not
to install sshd as service, but change their mind at some later point.
