That was supposed to fix the problem of console windows appearing when the

Does this do anything, Larry?

OK, stupid question but why do we want this part? For me, reverting this change allows me to start sshd and get output from 'ssh localhost date'. I guess I should be trying to reproduce the console window problem to answer the above...

Yeah, stupid question. Never mind. I see... But wait, now it all seems
to work. I guess this means that your patch Chris is a (confusing) success.
I'll bang on it a bit more to see if I can convince myself I didn't see
the ssh output failure the first time around...

Chris, you asleep?  Good.  No need to disturb a good night's sleep with
some bad news.

I figured out why it didn't work for me the first time and why it did
after that.  I think I'm finally up-to-speed with what these two competing
blocks of code do to create this issue. ;-)  For all those wondering (does
anybody still have the strength to keep reading this thread? ;-) ), the
first time I tried it, sshd could not interact with the desktop.  With
Chris's patch and this switch off, I see no extra consoles and no output
from 'ssh localhost date'.  Turning on desktop interaction for sshd and
restarting the service, I see no extra consoles and I get output from
'ssh localhost date'.  It's all so obvious now. ;-)

So there is still a problem (but a less than appetizing workaround).
