Thanks Michael, this special 'myssh' method works.

I can also confirm that Ralf's suggestion to use Lucid in combination
with '--without-gconf' does also work with the normal 'ssh' method. This
is what I'm using now since I don't care for gconf anyway. Thanks Ralf!

It is just a bit strange that it depends on the toolkit and/or gconf
whether ssh can allocate a pseudo terminal or not. The manual says that
this is a common problem with older ssh and cygwin, but I see the exact
same problem with a Lucid&gconf build and OpenSSH 5.8p2:

M-x eshell
ssh somehost
"Pseudo-terminal will not be allocated because stdin is not a terminal"

(The login works, but no prompt is appearing.)
