Another day and another post on the forum about "Connection has been unexpectedly closed. Server sent command exit status 0"

I have read the FAQ and searched this site and documentation for help but unfortunately am stumped and must post this request for help.

I am using winscp to connect to a very old Debian box, I have no problems using the GUI to connect. I have connected successfully many time and continue to be able to connect. Today I thought it would be nice to create a script to copy my one file to my Debian box automagically, but have run into a problem when I use the command line to connect to the Linux box. The problem occurs without any scripting just using "winscp" at the command line, then "open" then "home.hostname.ca:1873". I connect to the server, get prompted for a username, which seems to go ok, then a message about Using keyboard-interactive authentication and finally a prompt for a password. Once I've entered in my password I get a message "Using keyboard-interactive authentication." "Connection has been unexpectedly closed. Server send command exit status 0." "Authentication failed."

I've monkeyed around with the settings in the GUI of WINSCP to see if I could reproduce the error in it, but to no avail. I do have two log files below, the red is the console attempt to login, and the green is the GUI working login.

I appreciate anyone who can take the time to point me in the right direction.

I have attached two log files below, the RED is the non-working console login, and the GREEN is the working GUI login.

Ok, I've downgraded to 4.1.9 and reattempted to connect to my SCP server. Everything is connecting fine now. Thanks for the tip, if you'd still like a copy of my log files let me know and I'll attach them.

Cheers,
Jamie

OK, so it was possibly related to this bug. The fix will be included in 4.2.2. Please once it gets out, try it to verify that it indeed fixes your problem. Thanks.

Uh OK. I'm affected by this bug. I noticed that this has been fixed for a while. Can I download it? I need the FTPS version, so I have to use 4.2.x. But at the same time, I need the regular version too for SSH. So, any estimates on 4.2.2 release? I think it's an urgent bug.

I hope to release 4.2.2 at the end of this month.
