can never get stuck in an invisible piped tunnel which is prompting for

TortoisePlink.exe is maintained along with TortoiseCVS (thanks
Torsten!); you can get the binaries or source for it from the
TortoiseCVS project. These should work with Win32 command line

For binaries, install TortoiseCVS from www.tortoisecvs.org. You will
find TortoisePlink.exe in the TortoiseCVS folder in Program Files.

The source code is here:

And you'll probably want to use Pageant (an SSH passphrase holding
agent) along with TortoisePlink so you don't have to keep entering
passwords. Rough instructions are here:

Thinking about it, does TortoiseSVN ship with TortoisePlink?
