This should only happen if remsh is present on your system when
configure was run.  This is because remsh requires that arg order (and
ssh accepts either arg order).  The code in 2.6.4 accidentally made all
remote-shell invokations use the remsh arg order, but 2.6.5 fixed that
bug.  Did you upgrade from 2.6.4 without re-running configure?  (If you
used the config.h file from a 2.6.4 build, you'd not see the fix.)  Or
does your system now have a remsh binary installed in the path?
