Description of problem:
SSH server "eats" one Hebrew character

For example, if you type A, nothing appears.
If you then type B, C - A,B appears and C does not.

(Capital chars here are purposed here to represent Hebrew chars)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure and run SSH Client with ASCII 8-bit Hebrew codepage

For example, on Linux: 

	#xterm &

	on the new window:

2. Type some Latin chars
3. Switch to Hebrew keyboard and type some Hebrew chars


Actual Results:  Last typed character is missed.

For example, if you type A, nothing appears.
If you then type B, C - A,B appears and C does not.

Expected Results:  Each typed char should appear immediately, like for Latin chars

Additional info:

I first discovered the problem with a commercial product on which I am working.  After debugging, I concluded that this is the server, not my client, problem.  I then tested it with xterm and PUTTY, and received the same result.

The same problem exists with OpenSuse10.0

Can you please verify that this still happens with latest openssh version on FC5
as soon as it is released?
