After some time WinSCP is running I'm prompted for password when saving file edited in external editor. It's due that my ppk file cannot be opened. Same I cannot use ctrl+p to start putty it said that it cannot find putty.exe

After program restart problems gone.

-using ppk for login on ssh server
-ppk and putty.exe are in same dir as WinSCP
-WinSCP portable
-I'm using same ppk for multiple sessions at same time
-I'm starting WinSCP from toolbar in TotalCommander(run in dir is same as program's dir)
-I use SCP protocol

WinSCP 5.5.0 (b3839)
This problem started after upgrade from 5.1.2, happened twice in ~2 weeks
Win 7 x64
