Thanks for the patch.  In my testing, it has the following issues:

(1) ssh still doesn't work for some of our devices.  I think this is
because the ttymodes.c portion of your patch has "256" when it should
be "128".

(2) scp didn't actually work to any of my test netscreens for scp
$device:ns_sys_config /tmp.  I tried scp -v $device:ns_sys_config /tmp
to see what the command was.  I got:

debug1: Sending command: scp -v -f -- ns_sys_config

As you can see, "--" is still there.
