Your .login or .profile on the far end is printing stuff when stdout is
not a terminal.

We should work around this by looking for a magic identifier before we
start the server.  However, this won't happen soon; just fix your login
scripts for now.

One way to see if they're clean is to run a command like this:

	ssh myhost /bin/true

This should print nothing at all.  If it prints anything, Mercurial,
rsync, and other programs will get confused.
