SSH is often used for port forwarding, especially with -f & -N options (i.e. go to background after getting the password and don't run remote command). Unfortunately sshpass hangs in this case.
As of latest SVN with the newest PTY work around, this works for me. The other bug may have resolved this one, or it may have been resolved in some other way before. I believe it is the former.
Either way, the next version should have this resolved. Please confirm and close the bug.
