Freezing of WinScp 5.x while loosing Connection

Hello guys,

I use WinScp in a company since the first 5.x versions. There is a bug when loosing connections to one or more servers.
Im not sure how to reproduce it. My computer runs over night most days and almost every morning I have to kill the WinScp application. Th application still shows a reconnection window but is frozen.
My guess is it freezes if one server is in reconnection mode and a second one also has to reconnect or two server need to reconnect in the same time.
I mostly have two to four servers open at a time.

Some details of my setup:
- WinScp 5.1.5 under Windows 7 (bug existed in at least all 5.x versions)
- most servers use ftps explicit

I can maybe give you some more details if you need to.
This bug is really bad and it always forces me to use another program.
