Re: Bug while closing Winscp

Thanks for your post. This bug has been added to tracker.

Confirmed issue. Maybe a bug?

Hi there,

I can confirm this issue on my end too. Also XP with SP3 and WINSCP 4.2.6 (Build 721)
It happens to me since i configured my connection to send keep Alive packages.
When the remote connection than get lost (due to network problems for example)
I'm also getting Assertion failed: ramdon_active >=0, file putty\SSHRAND.c, line 242
followed by an abnormal programm termination.

Maybe a bug?

I was using Winscp and while I close it, I got un popup whith the message:
Assertion failed: ramdon_active >=0, file putty\SSHRAND.c, line 242

I'm using Winscp 4.26 GUI Explorer for few days and it worked perfectly.
I'm on Windows XP SP3, 32bits.
