Actually, I still had that patch.  In the email I quoted, I thought you
were making reference to a different solution, that didn't rely on a
second process.  I think I have a way to do this, but I thought if you
already had code it might be a head start.  I will fall back on your
forking patch if this idea doesn't work out.

The problem is recurring in nightly testing on BSDI, I believe it is,
with the current CVS sources.  It has also cropped up again in some
recent Solaris testing I've been setting up on the SourceForge Compile
Farm.  If we can install a fix and the problem doesn't recur for a week
or two, I'll be fairly satisfied that we got it, but I recall that
removing the select(fileno(std{out,err}), ...) calls in, um, I think
it's handle_m & handle_e in client.c, should make the sshstdio-6 test in
CVS's test suite to fail every time.

If you'd like to enter it yourself, the new FAQ is Wikied at
<http://ximbiot.com/cvs/wiki/index.php?title=CVS_FAQ>.  Otherwise, I'll
try to make some time to enter it sometime soon.
