While proxying, files are often truncated, issue fixed in PuTTY trunk #61
This is going to be a mediocre bug report but here we go.
Both PuTTY v0.62 and PuTTYTray v0.62-t013 suffer from an issue where files often get truncated.
For example when I'm proxying a site, jQuery will often not download all the way, stopping at the exact same point. Hard-refreshing sometimes fixes it but roughly 75% of the time it will truncate in that identical spot.
He (my company's IT guy) thinks this is the bug that was causing the issue but isn't sure: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/wishlist/half-closed.html
Sorry I can't provide more details.
Just to be clear;
If you really want to test it, I've dropped a build of next (cbbdf17) at: https://b.goeswhere.com/putty-p0.61-261-gcbbdf17-dbg.exe (ignore the
I'm entirely undecided about backporting large, non-superficial changes from trunk; any idea if PuTTY are going to do a release or a backport themselves?
Thanks for the build. I'll give it a try the next time I'm pulling my hair out while needing to proxy and encountering this issue.
I don't follow PuTTY development (I'm just a user in this case) but I would assume it eventually would make it into stable otherwise what would be the point of fixing the bug in trunk?
