It does indeed appear to do so:

tore@conserver:~$ console -x | grep test
 test-expect              on /dev/pts/0                       at  Local
 test-ssh                 on /dev/pts/19                      at  Local

Also, to comment on Anton's suggestion to use "ssh -tt" - this yields
the exact same results as without. If I add "-v" to the ssh command line
I can confirm that the ssh client reports "debug1: Entering interactive
session." both when it's being run directly and when it's being started
from expect.
