ls -l and pasting text in putty window causes system crash

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I've tried both 0.53b and snapshot 2003-09-10 and get the same
behaviours on my Win2K (with latest updates) on 500 MHz PC with 512MB

I don't these on my WinME machine connected to the same server (Debian
Linux 2.2 with latest sshd).

The behaviour is
1)a system crash when doing a directory listing
ie ls -l /var/spool/mmsmtp/quarantine, where there are c.1500 files.

2)a system crash when pasting text copied from any other window into
the putty window when using these editors: vi, ae, elvis (haven't
tried any others).

Can anyone suggest what might be wrong with my Win2K/Putty setup ?
