To be honest, I was just going by "ssh crashes when it uses FreeBSD's

OpenBSD's strnvis(3):

    int strnvis(char *dst, const char *src, size_t dstsize, int flag);

FreeBSD's and NetBSD's strnvis(3):

    int strnvis(char *dst, size_t dlen, const char *src, int flag);

so perhaps "BROKEN_STRNVIS" is a bit harsh, but they're definitely
