Factory-fresh phone and dropbear

Hello everybody

I got the Freerunner a week ago, and I have done the initial
update/upgrade successfully. But I have one question to the information
on the wiki:

"Note that running opkg upgrade on a factory-fresh phone will upgrade
dropbear (the ssh software) and various xserver packages, and neither
upgrades elegantly while in use, so either upgrade dropbear from the
FreeRunner's terminal and then upgrade the rest via ssh, or upgrade the
xserver packages via ssh and then upgrade the rest from the FreeRunner's

Why does this only apply to a factory-fresh phone? I imagine that there
could be a reason for updating these packages in the future also?
