I've been playing with this for a while now.  The only way I could get this
to work is by running ssh from an rxvt.  YMMV.

While I'm on the subject...  sshd works nicely, with the exception that
when starting it as a service (instructions taken from Sergey's web page
about inetd) from the Control Panel/Services thingie, NT claims that the
service could not be started, when it is actually running fine.

Any NT gurus out there have any idea what is going on?
