Question about -b mode of sftp(1) and auto-chdir behaviour
Hello,
i'm curious to know wether the automatic chdir behaviour of sftp(1)
in batch mode is a side-effect of the current implementation, or
if it's instead a regular feature. And, if it's indeed the latter,
wether there is any compatibility problem if one would actually
rely on it?
I'll attach a copy+paste diff to document this nice feature in
sftp.1, just for the hoped-for case.
Thank you! ..and ciao,

Well, it seems that those are nice but wanted side effects from
before start:

Great if that would be documented...
Btw. i've recognized that, when ssh is used with -M option,
other sessions inherit the PW entry of that session. Happens
that i've changed the shell via 'chpass -s' due to debugging
and the new login still presented the old shell. grep(1)ping
for pw_(chan|expi) in openssh.hg didn't helped so much.
Shouldn't this (GNU configure is the one which triggers the
most when grep(1)ed) be taken into account even under Control*?
I still haven't read the SSH related RFCs, and it seems that
a connection is heavily related with PW stuff, on the other hand.
Thanks and ciao,
