Btw. lousy connections don't come into this as SSH does HMAC checking on the data - i.e. even if you somehow managed to loose parts of a TCP stream in a way that's not detected by TCP (which is also practically impossible), SSH will aditionally cryptographically make sure that what is sent is what is received (if an error occurs, the connection will be aborted). Either the sending part / terminal has problem or the receiving part / terminal. Operating system, the network stack or the network quality cannot cause the described behaviour.
