--- Comment #2 from Darren Tucker <dtucker at dtucker.net> ---
having shell startups pollute stdin/stdout is a common problem for many
tools, not just sftp.  Adding shell-specific startup flags would
require shell (and possibly platform) specific knowledge, and that's a
rathole I am not willing to go down.  There is also the possibility
that something in the shell startup is actually desired (eg umask
setting or something).

It might be possible to give a hint in this case (similar to rsync's
"is your shell clean?" message), but as you've discovered the best
option right now is "so don't do that, then".
