It would be more reasonable for bash (or ssh, I'm not sure at what level
this handling should occur) to discard the partially typed line.  Not
to execute it.

If I open an rxvt and type "touch this_file_should_not_exist" but do not
press Enter, and then I close the terminal using my window manager's
"Close" functionality, bash does not execute the partially-typed command.
(Verified by the absence of the file in a new window.)

This may turn out to be a bug in ssh instead of bash.  I don't know.
