comment Why are rules not combining in an ssh config file?
In your example, how is "user2" ever set? I thought the first obtained value for a host is used, so every host will match the first block and have "user1" set?

comment Use keyboard-interactive authentication when piping ssh output to other command
@StephaneChazelas: Thanks, your comments helped me figure out the answer! If I run ssh myserver cat remote-file alone it works as expected, echo test > /dev/tty works as well. However, running with set -x spits out a bunch of junk. It turns out that I had customized my prompt to set the window title to the currently running command. That created a subshell for every command, and somehow messed this up. When I commented out the offending lines, it worked.

comment ls behaves differently under strace
Incredible, no matter how obscure a problem I have, I can be sure that someone else encountered it before, at that there's likely a solution here. Thanks!

Yes, but with the added requirement of bringing current software to an old OS.

comment 'Distribution' to install in home directory (on older Linux)
Thanks, that looks interesting. I've always shied away from GoboLinux because of their funny directory structure, but I'll give it a try! I wonder if it is able to compile the heavy stuff, like web browsers.
