Oh and, not to forget, it only happens when running against the PAM
enabled version of rlogin in Linux.  When disabling PAM for rlogin on
the server, everything works fine.  In this case the authentication
isn't done by the PAM functions linked to rlogin, but by starting
login(1) on the remote side, same as on Cygwin.
