I just found out that the PuTTY developers have a time machine!
Because now, the available version on the website is 0.60beta. But I
remember that I've built TortoisePlink from version 0.60 (without beta).
I've downloaded the source to check whether I missed something important
when patching Plink. To my big surprise, a lot of code was different
from the code I used for TortoisePlink. That's when I got confused: how
can a beta version come out *after* the release version?
First I thought I read it wrong the last time I got the sourcecode. But
the internet archive agrees with me:
http://web.archive.org/web/20070827041616/http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html
The page from last year has the version 0.60 without beta, while the
page now has version 0.60beta as the version to use.

Does anyone know any of the PuTTY devs? I'd like to get my hands on
their time machine :)

That said:
can you please try the nightly build from here:
http://nightlybuilds.tortoisesvn.net/1.5.x/win32/
and check whether the issue is fixed?
Since the build is still running, please wait until the file dates on
the server change from 25-Jun-2008 to 28-Jun-2008.

Stefan
