I have been seeing the same behavior on my system (using F-Secure SSH).
The problem seems to be caused by the following line in
	cmd = "%s %s '%s -R %s serve --stdio'"

ssh is interpreting the entire part in single quotes as a command name
instead of breaking it up into a command name plus arguments. Removing
the single quotes helps, but the pull command ends up hanging, as others
have also observed...
