Thanks for the info rowbearto.

Unfortunately, I'm in a pretty security paranoid environment and I'm not sure I can go with a key pair login. I'll have to investigate. The ideal scenario for me is that I log into a ssh session once in the SE build terminal, and everything executes there. I've tried just logging in and the password prompt confuses things and I get disconnected for too many authentication failures. I never even see the password prompt.

I'd be surprised if you can't use key pair, but if you really can't, try running ssh inside of "script" in the SE terminal so that it can be provided a pty:

script -eqfc "ssh user@host" /dev/null

I think ssh needs to think it is running in a terminal in order to provide password prompt, running inside script will make ssh think that.
