Unhappy SSH client display problem

I've been using SSH from home and work for months with no problems. Starting this week, I've had a really odd problem with my SSH windoze client. Nothing has changed on the server side, but somehow I seem to have screwed up the client.

The text that I'm typing is not displayed in the terminal window as I type it. The commands work, and the results display mostly correctly (albeit starting on the same line as the $ prompt, not the next line as I was used to).

I've dabbled with every setting I can find in the client from keyboard type to terminal emualtion to colors. Nothing helps. Also, I've checked the man pages for SSH client and FAQs. I can't get commercial support for it because we're an educational institution and have the free unsupported version.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled SSH client, but it didn't help. And the kicker....same thing happens with PuTTY client.

Here are the symptoms:

In both SSH Win client and PuTTY, my text doesn't display on the screen as I type it....unless....I open TWO SSH sessions. In the second terminal window, the text displays correctly.

This is only on our AIX server, not on our Red Hat 7.2 server. Still works as expected there.

This is only on my windoze 2000 box at work. My windoze 2000 box at home still works fine, and everyone else's windoze 2000 box at work still works fine. I'm not sure what changed or where. :-(


Server: AIX 4.3.2 (RS6000), SSH 3.0.1, bash 2.05a (very vanilla .bash_profile, .bashrc)

Client: Win2K, SSH win client 3.1.0-build235, PuTTy 0.52 client

Thanks in advance!
