  No, it is not. There is not a second tcp header.

  There pipe which is created is for application data only.

  With SSH1 from, there is an issue in certain situations where you
try and use the port-forwarding (particularly the agent forwarding) and have
chains of SSH. The issue can be summarized as a blocking I/O head-of-queue

  The SSH 2.0 connection layer now deals with this problem and was one the
major motivations for the 2.0 protocol.
