I get the same problem as Jerry, but only with Putty version 0.53 and
not 0.52. Looking at the 'Changes' page - I can't see what would be
making such a difference?

My debian packages for openssl and ssh2 are completely up to date, so
I'm not sure what to do on the server end.

Thanks for any advice...
