Hmmmm so if CVS' output is a pipe, PCL-CVS hits the CVS+SSH+libc+pipe problem
and if it's a pty, it hits the other problem.

IIRC, one way to get things working is to use a pipe (as it should,
and as it was doing in Emacs-21.2) and to set CVS_RSH not to `ssh'
but to a script like

        (ssh "$@" 2>&1 1>&3 | cat) 3>&1 1>&2

that runs ssh's stderr through `cat'.  Jim, can you try that ?
