Capistrano vs. MotD?

This seems really weird to me... Capistrano seems to trip itself up on
my server's message/banner. It's not long or anything, pretty normal,
I'd say...

Also: It looks like it's making a seperate connection for each
command? Is that normal?

Here's some relevant output:

    [myserver.com] executing command

It looks to me like five lines up should read "ln -nfs
/home/user/releases/20060829030808". Why use ls to capture the date at
all?
