https://bugzilla.mindrot.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1328 - multiple $DISPLAY
https://bugzilla.mindrot.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1329 - stale sockets
https://bugzilla.mindrot.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1330 - ControlPersist

Sorry, I haven't updated the patches and made sure they build and work
with the current CVS tree. And my multi-display patch contains some
other fixes which I think came from you in the first place so I haven't
tried to explain them in detail. But it's basically there.

We need to have the argument about multiple agent support again, but I
need to win it this time. And we need to sort out the escape handling --
stuff like ~. doesn't work for a ControlClient. That's filed as #1331.

At some point when I have a little more time, I'll adjust my
ControlPersist patch to close stdin/stdout/stderr. I keep finding that
cvs waits for ssh to finish, and when I log out of ssh sessions I've
started a dæmon from, they hang too.
