    Theres a thread on this in the jailbreaking forum. Just uninstall OpenSSH, reboot, you should be good to go. We just need to be patient for updates to sort out all the little quirks like this.

    Uninstalling SSH should fix it, but not until after you reboot.

    Remember though that the GPS chip needs to be fed info, the chip isn't smart enough to get GPS locations by itself; it's possible that the GPS chip is having difficulty reaching the GPS satelites.
