Topic "Pausing at password prompt in WinSCP 4.2.x"

Author Message


I have WinSCP 4.2.2 and I stored my password in WinSCP. When I try to log in, WinSCP paused at "Authenticating with pre-entered password" and waited me to click OK. If I click OK, all is well and I can log in. However, I never encountered this pause in WinSCP 4.1.x. Is this a new "feature"? Is it possible for me to not even click OK to log in? I also notice that this pause only occurs in non-Cygwin SSH server. FYI, the server's SSH version is OpenSSH 5.2p1 with OpenSSL 0.9.8k.
