Description David Woodhouse 2003-11-05 03:58:24 EST
When using a proxycommand, SSH always gives a warning about not being
able to set the TCP_NODELAY socket option on the pipe which it's using
to communicate with the proxycommand. This extra line of output
confuses many things which use SSH to invoke remote commands,
including pine...

$ ssh -o "proxycommand sh -c '( echo CONNECT %h:%p HTTP/1.0; echo; cat
) | nc 3128'" pentafluge.infradead.org exec
getsockopt TCP_NODELAY: Socket operation on non-socket
* PREAUTH Ready.

Fix in $URL.
