Indeed, now both processes are orphaned.  That's not the behavior I'd
expect, honestly.  I would expect that the command started on the remote
end would be the leader of its own process group, and if it didn't want
it and its children to die, that it would call setsid() or setpgid().

I didn't see anything in the ChangeLog that addressed this explicitly;
is there a reason for it?
