Topic "WinSCP Hangs after connecting"

Author Message


WinSCP v380 hangs often after connecting to a server. I'm not sure, but it might be related to having two instances open at some point and then eventually it stops working. If I get logged out and try to reconnect, it shows me a directory tree, but if I click on anything (menu items, nodes in the directory) it does nothing and then eventually says "not responding" in the title bar. I don't recall this happening with version 376. I installed 380 on Jan 25,2006 and have been struggling with this issue every since.
Once this problem occurs, restarting the app does not help. Logging out/in does not help. Restarting the computer DOES help. Switching from commander to explorer UI DOES help and things continue to work after switching back to the commander UI!
