Tortoisesvn over SSH with pki: every update of working copy asks for passphrase four times

Dear list members,


I have tried Google and the FAQ, but found no answer - perhaps someone on
this list can point me to the solution:


I use TortoiseSVN since many years on several computers connected to a
private svn archive on a server over a ssh-connection. It worked and works
fine for all computers I had so far, but now I have installed the most
recent version of TortoiseSVN on two new computers with Windows 8.1, and on
both machines every time I update the working copy, I have to submit the
passphrase for my private key for four times, not only once as on all other


Can somebody explain the reasons for this different behaviour? Are there any
settings where I can change this behavior? I do not want to store my key on
the machine with pageant, but I don't want to enter my passphrase four times
every time I update my working copy either.


Thanks a lot in advance for any help!


Kind regards,


Eike Kohler
