I'm using this feature in 8.0 and it's very sad that it was removed in future versions.
Why I need it:
1. I connect to the sunOs server via scp with "bash -c 'sudo su - username'";
2. winScp do not pick up the PATH settings in .profile of username, I have a workaround for that - setting the PATH manually thru terminal(Ctrl+T).
3. When I edit the file it opens in new session(since 8.1) and PATH is not set, that's why it's not possible to save the changes.
Could you, please, advice any workaround for this situation?
