If they all close, then gnome-terminal is crashing.

This sounds very strange.

Never that I can think of.

I wonder what happens if you do "ls /usr/bin > somefile" on the
remote machine. I do not expect that to crash the terminal. So
you could then scp the file back to your machine and look at it

I wondered at first if there was something in the listing which
is acting as a sequence of control characters (or whatever the
proper term is) on ssh. But if that was the case, then I would
expect just your ssh session to die. Not your gnome-terminal too.
