Those are channel requests not global requests.  sshd does this in

         if ((channel_id = channel_find_open()) == -1) {
                packet_put_cstring("keepalive at openssh.com");
                packet_put_char(1);     /* boolean: want reply */
        } else {
                channel_request_start(channel_id, "keepalive at openssh.com",

and Tera Term seems to handle the channel requests just fine.  Presumably
if you could get a connection with no active channels (ie the equivalent of
ssh -N) then perhaps it'd have a problem, or perhaps that's not even
possible with that client.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
