Problem with PuTTY Release 0.53b / 0.52

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


My details..

PuTTY: Release 0.53b
OS: Windows 2000 5.00.2195 (Service Pack 3)
Protocol Used: SSH
SSH server: SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_2.5.2p2
Contents of the PuTTY Event Log:
2003-07-14 15:10:22    Looking up host "*.*.*.*"
2003-07-14 15:10:22    Connecting to *.*.*.* port 22
2003-07-14 15:10:23    Server version: SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_2.5.2p2
2003-07-14 15:10:23    We believe remote version has SSH2 RSA padding bug
2003-07-14 15:10:23    We claim version: SSH-2.0-PuTTY-Release-0.53b
2003-07-14 15:10:23    Using SSH protocol version 2
2003-07-14 15:10:23    Doing Diffie-Hellman group exchange
2003-07-14 15:10:23    Doing Diffie-Hellman key exchange
2003-07-14 15:10:24    Host key fingerprint is:
2003-07-14 15:10:24    ssh-rsa 1024
2003-07-14 15:10:24    Initialised triple-DES client->server encryption
2003-07-14 15:10:24    Initialised triple-DES server->client encryption

When I connect to this server I am successfully able to do so
immediately. But working on this is amazingly slow, a simple "LS" OR
"PS AXLWW" takes about 2-3 minutes to list all files / processes.
"TOP" hangs as if nothing is happening. If I connect from any other
workstation this is not a problem.
This only happens when connected to this particular server from my
workstation. Unfortunately I haven't been able to re-produce the
problem on any other workstation or for any other server. Although I
have upgraded today to Release 0.53b, this would happen in the
previous version (Release 0.52) as well but not in Release 0.51
Are there any other details I can provide? I also run pageant in the
background with a couple of identities..
Is this a know problem? if yes is there a workaround?
