Fix locale errors on Mac OS X 10.7 or later

The OS X built-in ssh client (/usr/bin/ssh), for some reason badly mishandles UTF-8 in Lion, resulting in annoying Bash errors:
LC_CTYPE: cannot change locale (UTF-8)


The fix is very easy. On your local system open your ssh_config file as root (usually in /etc/ssh_config or /etc/sshd/ssh_config) and comment this line:
SendEnv LANG LC_*
That's it!

Alternatively, you can install a different SSH client (OpenSSH installed via MacPorts is a good alternative).
