Re: Strange TortoisePlink.exe error

I have essentially the same issue with the new GUI client. It used to
work on 1.4.8 and now it's broken with 1.5.x. Before the downloading
the July 10th nightly build, TortoiseSVN would simply hang and I would
receive no user/password prompt at all. Now, I get a DOS box with
PLINK running (hmm, shouldn't it be hidden?) and no prompt for a
password. So, you are getting closer. However, I am still screwed
right to a wall without getting PLINK back up and running. So, svn
+ssh is 100% completely borked at this point.

For one of my repositories, I use the following syntax:


And I simply add a password. On another I have:


And I have to add a privacy passphrase

Since TortoiseSVN does not allow PLINK per repository, I have plink
configured under settings->network as

plink -i "keyfile"

And it works with both under 1.4.8, but nogo in 1.5.x
