Not close enough: his 2000 patch just changed indentation. I think the
origin of this problem is:
branch nick: HEAD
timestamp: Thu 1994-03-03 05:50:31 +0000
(pty_max_bytes): New variable.
(send_process): Send an eof after each pty_max_bytes bytes.
And clearly there was a good reason for that. I don't know enough about
PTY programming to know what we should do.

Agreed (if at all).
