tty settings with rsync -e ssh interrupt

I'm following up on a bug reported back in May 2002:

this bug was also reported to the rsync mailing list:

I couldn't find any discussion other than the reporters post
describing the problem.

Anyway, I just downloaded the new rsync-2.5.6 source, installed
it, and found that the bug still exists.  This problem shows
itself when using "-e ssh", and Ctrl-C'ing at the ssh password
prompt - the terminal gets screwed up.

Anyone have any insight on this?
