Re: Plink window showing after upgrade to

Problem resolved -- it looks like during the upgrade, TSVN lost track
of TortoisePlink. Maybe I had previously set the external SSH client
to TortoisePlink.exe (I just don't remember) -- if so, the upgrade
seems to have resulted in that setting getting lost. Apparently TSVN
is smart enough to find Plink.exe in my system folder and run that
instead (with the accompanying annoying window!). If I hadn't had
Plink.exe on my system, the connection would have failed out-right.

When I set the external SSH client (in Settings|Network) to
TortoisePlink.exe (in C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin) I have
returned to previous behavior (connection succeeds with no annoying

Maybe this will help someone else who experiences the same issue.
