(Please forgive the delay--this message got lost for a few months.)

      The problem
    is that ssh (cygwin's port) running with the w32 version of CVS Emacs
    needs the option `-tt' prior to the host name to open the connection
    correctly.  The problem is that the `rlogin' function treats the `-tt' as
    the remote host name because it is the first argument.  

    The following patch modifies the `rlogin' function command line
    interpretation by assuming that the second argument is the remote
    hostname if the first argument starts with a dash.

That is a kludgy way to deal with the problem.  The user should
not need to type -tt every time.
