Make sure you're using the latest version, as ssh is constantly
improving (the repository size issue sounds like something I fixed a
couple of versions ago).   At he moment using something like plink.exe
with :ext: is more stable if you want fewer hassles (more people have
experience with it so it's probably easier to solve problems).
