Well, this command is actually being constructed by ssh code and then
executed via popen.  This would mean building my own ssh from scratch, I
suppose  in order to figure this out, I might need to do this anyway.

Just wanted to be clear on one point, that is this code executes
fine with ZoneAlarm Pro or no ZoneAlarm, it only starts failing
with ZoneAlarm Suite is installed which I'm thinking interfers with
the pipe created by popen.

I'll have to build ssh to see if this will clear the problem.
