There is an errata pending for rsh for AS2.1, although i am not sure
if it fixes your problem.
Preliminary binaries can be downloaded here:
These packages have not gone through QA yet, but have been tested by
myself on a local box and worked fine.
If you want to you can give them a shot and let me know if they fix
Read ya, Phil
