Due to the volume of output this generated I took this discussion 

Steve identified the problem...  /dev/null had permissions of 600  
I did a sudo chmod 666 /dev/null and sftp is now working!!

That sure is odd!  One for the books (oh, and I guess I need to learn to 
read a bit of strace output.)

Thanks to all who helped!
