I have a reproducible crash when:

  • Running putty.exe from 3f115c6
  • Pageant has a key loaded into memory
  • ssh agent forwarding is enabled
  • I run ssh-add --somethinginvalid (any invalid parameter will do)

I have a minidump of the crash but I am unsure if it will contain my keys - please advise.

GH-123: Fix free of an uninitialised pointer.
CHAN_AGENT channels need c->u.a.message to be either NULL or valid
dynamically allocated memory, because it'll be freed by
ssh_channel_destroy. This bug triggers if an agent forwarding channel
is opened and closed without having sent any queries.
