--- Comment #6 from Christoph Anton Mitterer <calestyo at scientia.net> ---
Reopening this for now:

Could someone of the developers have a look at the most recent comments
at: http://tracker.nagios.org/view.php?id=321
gordonmessmer had a look at the issue and may have found the reason.

He indicated that the reason is possibly that the forked mux process
inherits the stdout/stderr from the invoking ssh process and that
causes the troubles.

He further wonders, whether ssh's mux process shouldn't close these as
a proper fix.

If not, feel free to close the issue again as INVALID. :)
