This is a solution that I suggested in reply to a discussion about my patch 
for this issue. Actually I use the solution for LinCVS to communicate with 
cvs (older versions without the patch) and since then never again have 
recognized any data loss and haven't received any user-bug-reports either, so 
it appears to be a reliable workaround.
The drawback I see is errors reported via ssh-stderr might no more be 
serialized with ssh-stdout - but this seems to be of minor importance.
