Thanks for pointing that out. I don't know why it went missing.

I have just published some beta builds from both the 2.5.x branch (2.5.2
pre-release) and the upcoming 3.x release:
https://xpra.org/beta/windows/

Please note:
* version 2.5 switched to paramiko as the default SSH backend.
You should only be able to hit the problem you describe if somehow you
configure your client to revert back to using Plink as backend.
* these latest builds now include Tortoise Plink 0.71, which fixes some
serious vulnerabilities:

Though we won't be switching back to plink for the time being.

Cheers,
Antoine
