Description nvwarr 2000-11-21 07:14:16 EST
ssh truncates command lines after 837 characters. e.g.
ssh `hostname` echo /usr/bin/*
only gets part way through the files beginning with "a" and gives up part
way through a filename.

Umm.. _Don't_ use so long names then?  There should be much better 
ways of accomplishing this.
