Confirmed, on Windows 7 I see no hangup at the ssh login dialog when using plink

I'm not ready to experiment with version 4 yet, so I disabled the beta 
repository, uninstalled *xpra* and reinstalled.  That does indeed give a

problem or conflict with updating.  I forget the details, but there's no problem
