WinCVS Over SSH Hangs

This is similar to the "CVS over SSH hangs' thread but is not the same problem.

First the details:
Solaris 7 server
Win2k client
CVS 1.11.1p1 (client/server)
WinCvs or
SSH client is any of these
 1) PuTTY 0.51, 0.52, or 0.52+ (bleeding edge).
 2) OpenSSH_3.1p1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090602f
 3) SSH Secure Shell 3.1.0 Windows Client

Now the problem: I can open an ssh session using any of the clients directly and authenticate using password or passphrase authentication. Commands like "ssh address@hidden cvs version" work fine.

However, if I set WinCvs up to use ssh authentication, the cvs Console Window fails to terminate. WinCvs reports the command issued, information requested, and "CVS exited normally with code of 0" BUT THE CONSOLE WINDOW IS STILL OPEN and the 'fish' swimming. Killing the concole window lets things continue normally and cause any further problems under W2k but causes an exception error under W98.

Recent changes: I upgraded to WinCvs 1.3.8 and PuTTY 0.52 when I first noticed the problem. I've sence gone back to 1.3.7 and 0.51 but still have the problem.
