We're getting occasional reports of PuTTY sessions dying with messages like "Server sent disconnect message: received data for nonexistent channel -1". Reports so far:

Update: We believed this fixed as of 2002 May 18 (and have had one person report that our fix made their problem go away), but we've received reports that the `ieof' variant at least is still out there (in 2002-07-04 and 2002-09-07).

Update 2002-09-15: We believe the last bug of this kind has been squashed as of 2002-09-16; no-one's confirmed this, but no-one's complained either. We've also put code in which will hopefully make catching any remaining problems easier.
