Just FYI: In an off-list email, Faheem kindly pointed me to 
which explains the problem and mentions that an alternative workround is to 
install netcat and then use:

ssh -o "ProxyCommand nc %h %p" yourserver

This might be an alternative if you prefer not to install a non-standard ssh 
and only need the workround in some particular circumstances.
