Its not Vista. Its KFW 3.1 vs 3.2. The GSSAPI implementation was
replaced between those releases. In 3.1 a single mechanism GSSAPI
implementation was included. In 3.2 a multi-mechanism implementation is
included. In 3.1 the GSSAPI could refuse to deallocate memory that
wasn't allocated by the mechanism. In 3.2 the GSSAPI does not.
plink/putty has a bug. I know it has a bug because the bug was fixed a
long time ago. the bug was masked by KFW 3.1 and is not masked by 3.2.
Please get a new putty.
