Shared SSH public key authentication w/ TortoisePlink and Pageant not working in 1.7.1

Ever since I upgraded to version 1.7.1, any server commands I send
through TortoiseSVN are asking me to enter the password for my Putty
private SSH key (.ppk).

 

I am running on Windows 7 (x64) and have shared public key
authentication set up via Putty and Pageant as outlined at:

http://tortoisesvn.net/ssh_howto.html

 

I have a saved Putty profile set up for the server I am connecting to,
and that profile is pointing to the .ppk file.

 

My TortoiseSVN working directory is checked out from
svn+ssh://<username>@<profileName>/svnrep/<projectDir>/

 

My servers config file is using the default config, and the SSH client
in the TortoiseSVN Network settings tab is cleared out (therefore using
the default TortoisePlink.exe). I do not have a default profile set up
in Putty, and I confirmed that
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\Putty\Sessions\Default%20Settings
does not exist in the registry.

 

It seems as if TortoisePlink.exe just isn't checking for Pageant
sessions anymore. Is this a bug?

 

For now I can limp by with either hardcoding my key password into the
SSH client field as a command line option, or by pointing the SSH client
to the stock plink.exe binary. However, doing the former is a security
no no, and doing the latter opens up a black console window for every
single svn command, which is really annoying. It's not just an
aesthetic annoyance. The window steals focus when it opens,
interrupting whatever other tasks I may be doing.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,
