Default Working with ssh's escape character

I had difficulties getting ssh(1)'s ESCAPE CHARACTERS to be recognized
from within a login shell over ssh. In particular, sometimes the escape
character was not recognized as such. I was able to find in gmane a
similar issue for a Gentoo user from a few years ago. I don't have
that gmane URL handy.
Do you find the below patch acceptable?
