FWIW, the issue here seems to definitely be the SSH included in Solaris 9,
rather than Solaris 9 and its interaction with SSH.  In other words, I tried
using OpenSSH (3.6p1) on Solaris 9, and it gave no problems -- so there's a
slightly better long-term solution, until Sun gets around to doing something
about it (or rsync works around it).
