Bug#366814: openssh-client: ssh -q -q does not suppress all warnings

Package: openssh-client
Version: 1:4.2p1-8
Severity: minor

>From "man ssh":

     -q      Quiet mode.  Causes all warning and diagnostic messages to be
             suppressed.  Only fatal errors are displayed.  If a second -q is
             given then even fatal errors are suppressed.


[~] -> echo | ssh -q -q somehost
Pseudo-terminal will not be allocated because stdin is not a terminal.

AFAICS, even "ssh -q" should suppress this message, because I think it
clearly qualifies as warning or diagnostic message.

Workaround: "ssh -T" does not display the warning.
