What I'm guessing is happening is that there some error on the BSD
system, and that causes garbage (in the form of a big number) to be
sent to the linux system, which then exits in an OverflowError.

    Is there any way you can get the stderr from the BSD side?
Usually ssh will redirect both the stdout and stderr, so you can see
both tracebacks.  Also the other side might have written some useful
messages to the error log.
