I'm seeing a slight delay as we launch the subprocess handling the
password prompt, but nowhere near 15 seconds, more like 2 or 3 seconds.
I just assumed that the system I was testing on was a bit slow.

No user application should be able to do that.. could be triggering some
sort of Windows OS bug.

Thanks. I'll take a look ASAP.
In the meantime, you can switch to plink instead of the paramiko backend:
xpra_cmd --ssh="plink.exe" attach ssh://username:password@host/

The stable repository actually has 3.0 proper, which is very slightly
newer than this.
You should always add both stable and beta repositories, as the beta one
is only a supplemental one, which may or may not have packages in it.
FYI: 4.0 builds will start landing in the beta area soon.
