In an SSH-2 session, if PuTTY is presented with a single `keyboard-interactive' packet containing multiple prompts, it will crash after the first prompt. This only affects PuTTY proper; the non-GUI tools (PSCP, PSFTP, Plink) should work fine.

This problem has the same root cause as ssh1-bad-passphrase-crash, and should be fixed by the same rearrangement.

Update, 2005-10-31: I believe this should now be fixed, and we've had one report confirming that.
