Bug with TortoisePlink

Hello Tortoise Team,

  In tortoise SVN >= 1.5.x I have been experiencing problems
interfacing with my svn server through an SSH tunnel. For instance,
when checking out a project I will specify a URL like: "svn+ssh://

  When proceeding with a checkout, I receive a dialog from
TortoisePlink asking "login as" even though I specified my login
information in the URL. That's a little weird, right? After keying in
the correct information, I receive an error message stating
"Connection closed unexpectedly".

   After doing some sleuthing I believe I figured out the issue: When
a user has set a default host name value in Putty, the TortoisePlink
behaves incorrectly. When I clear the registry value:
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > SimonTatham > Putty > Sessions >
Default%20Settings > HostName" everything starts working. This does
seem to occur in TortoiseSVN releases prior to 1.5.x

   I have confirmed this issue on another computer. This can be
replicated by the following steps:

   1. Open putty
   2. Click once on default settings to highlight it.
   3. Type in a value for the "Host Name (or IP address)" field.
(preferrably different than your SVN server)
   4. Click the save button
   5. Then click cancel.
   6. Now try to checkout a project with the svn+ssh protocol.
   7. You then should clear the mentioned registry value above to get
TortoisePlink to work again.
