There's no problem unless you were expecting the fall back to rlogin
to work, when calling slogin.  The non-free version of ssh makes a
distinction here, and falls back to the correct one.

I wouldn't call that disastrous myself, since I generally set:

  FallbackToRsh no

anyway, because I never use rsh/rlogin for anything.

I suppose if anyone can actually be bothered to report this as a bug,
I'll fix it.

Cheers, Phil.
