Thanks, this works.

However, with this option ssh alters the output of all commands: it adds 
CR=0x0d in front of every NL=0x0a. This doesn't happen without this option.
Why is sshd adding CR?

I think the only effect of running in the terminal is the term flag that 
the process sees on the stdin and stdout (in shell it is [ -t 1 ]). The 
process is supposed to detect the terminal caps and print the output 

I even verified that this is sshd is doing it and not the cat command by 
writing the C program printing newlines.
