That's a good idea.

Indeed, PuTTY's native "plink.exe" (version 0.63) works correctly.

Pasting the exact same command to "TortoisePlink.exe" causes the
application to crash.

Just for giggles, I replaced "TortoisePlink.exe" with PuTTY's
"plink.exe" (and renamed the latter to match the former) and TSVN no
longer crashes. Instead, it pops-up a COM window for TortoisePlink.exe,
which says, "Server refused our key", which is expected, as I
authenticate with a password and not a key.

I realize that there must be differences between the stock PuTTY exe and
TSVN's version of it, so this isn't a "fix", but it does demonstrate
that something seems to be awry in the TSVN version.

Thanks for the suggestion; what's the next step in finding a solution?
