If an SSH-2 server sends PuTTY more data than its window allows, PuTTY gets confused, and stops sending SSH_MSG_CHANNEL_WINDOW_ADJUST. While such servers are buggy, PuTTY should behave better. Simply dropping the connection would be unnecessarily rude, especially since overrunning the window is a recommended way to get better performance out of naive SSH-2 implementations. Better would be for PuTTY to send an extra WINDOW_ADJUST to retrospectively permit the excess data. This is what it now does.
Audit trail for this semi-bug.
