Would also be interesting to see ssh -t 0 "nohup yes & exit" with the same
shell you used earlier.

If that produces a stream of 'y's, then it's that either the shell or
the tty driver is sending HUP to all processes in the session group on
OpenBSD but not on Linux.  If sshd terminates, then it's that the kernel
is closing the pty.
