comment Shell loses keypresses when running SSH in the background
Unfortunately -f doesn't play well with ControlPersist. When using ssh -fN the connection is closed after ControlPersist seconds.

Err, yes, I mean ControlPersist. It's relevant to -f because, ControlPersist seconds after running ssh -fN, the connection is closed. If I remove ControlPersist the connection isn't closed.

The difficulty with using -f is that the connection is closed after a timeout of ConnectionPersist :/

comment Write all tmux scrollback to a file
Thanks for the answer… But my version of tmux doesn't accept -S to capture-pane (it appears to be 1.3-2, although that's from dpkg, as I can't figure out how to get tmux to show me a version number…)

comment SSH output isn't line buffered?
Dave Vandervies has told me out-of-band that he was the one who made the edit, and that it is correct (ie, stdout is initially fully buffered, not line buffered).
