I suppose the next step is to try to reproduce this in a command-line perl
invocation, e.g., something like
perl -we 'my $str=`ssh -n user\@machine.domain ls`;print "[$str]\n"'
and see what messages that produces. I assume it's working for you from a
Linux machine... Also, I don't believe you've said anything about your
system configuration -- please review <http://cygwin.com/problems.html>
and provide the requested information.
