We have dropped this default for ssh some weeks ago. It is not a sane
assumption to give ssh this value as argument; it overwrites settings in
~/.ssh/config. And in case there is no argument and no config setting,
ssh assumes the local user name by default, which is sane.

I don't know which username plink is assuming if no user is given as
parameter.

Best regards, Michael.
