Hitting ctrl-o to get a shell doesn't work either, it doesn't open a
shell on the remote host.

Is there a way to execute commands on the remote host without
opening a dedicated ssh session?

the fact that the link uses a remote shell is abstracted away by the VFS
layer, so: no.

however, i must say that i find the idea to expose the shell through a
"side channel" intriguing. but this is not going to be an easy exercise
to start with, and the fact that the synchronization between mc and the
(local) shell is now even more broken than in mc <= 4.5 doesn't exactly
make the challenge smaller.
