Reverse port forwarding Putty Crash

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

I have been sucessfully using PuTTY to connect and port forward from an XP
machine behind a firewall to a Linux machine with a fixed IP on the
Internet. I have several ports forwarded SMTP 25, IMAP 143 and  5900 for
VNC. All working well.

I have tried a port forward in the reverse direction. Session still
established from XP to Linux but setting up a port forwarded from the Linux
Machine to the XP. When I initiate traffic on this port from the Linux box
to the XP box, PuTTY on the XP box GPF's.

This looks like this bug
which I thought was fixed. I tried an alternate configuration with only one
port forwarded from XP to Linux. The GPF still happens.

Has anyone else seen this? Is there a Fix/Workaround

Thanks in advance
