Nothing you do to the car can fix the potholes in the road.  You can
spend all the time and money you want upgrading the suspension to try to
smooth out the ride, but you're still going to destroy tires if the road
is bad enough.  If you want to fix it, go figure out how to fix ssh and
submit a patch.  Or convince the ssh maintainers to do it.  Here's
evidence that it affects things other than CVS:

        $ cat bigfile | wc -c
        $ (ssh localhost sleep 10& sleep 3; cat bigfile) | wc -c
        cat: stdout: Resource temporarily unavailable

ssh and cat are sharing the same stdout, so when ssh in the background
sets nonblocking mode, it screws up cat in exactly the same way as it
screws up CVS.
