I figured it out by accident.  In trying to get sshd working under
cygwin (which I haven't done yet) I set the environment variable

CYGWIN=binmode ntsec tty

This fixes this problem for me, and I believe it is the tty portion of
that environment variable that is the key one to changing the
behaviour.
