The sshd man page says:

     sshd (OpenSSH Daemon) is the daemon program for ssh(1).  Together these
     programs replace rlogin and rsh,

which can be interpreted as being the remote shell daemon. I think
that the bash man page should be clarified.

It doesn't: If sshd is not regarded as the remote shell daemon, then
the bash man page implies that with "ssh <host> <cmd>", bash does *not*
run the init files. But when testing this on various machines, one can
see that bash really runs the init files.

My main complaint is that bash behaves differently when one uses
"ssh <host> <cmd>" and "ssh -t <host> <cmd>". Something needs to
be done to make these commands consistent.

BTW, where can this discussion be found? Could there be a reference
to this discussion in the CHANGES and COMPAT files?
