I've also noticed this problem with newer versions of 'plink'. I have
intended to bring this matter to the attention of the PuTTY folks
) but I haven't had time. (I've been looking for work.)
My suggestions are:
* Try using the Cygwin SSH instead. My plink work was only intended as
a workaround for boxes on which one couldn't install Cygwin. Can you
do this? For more assistance, see Mark Hershberger's instructions
and also search the tramp archive
for posts regarding Cygwin.
* Try working with the PuTTY folks to fix plink. It would be very nice
to have a working non-Cygwin (esp MinGW) way to do tramp from NT/2k.
* Try posting to the Tramp list (this is CCed), which has listfolk
experienced with these issues on many platforms (including M$).
