OpenSSH and WinCVS

I experienced problems when using WinCVS 1.2 on Windows 98, OpenSSH 3.4p1-5. I
searched this mailing list, and found that other people had experienced the
same kind of problem a month ago, but not exactly the same one.
When I use WinCVS with OpenSSH, a dos window pops up each time I try to
perform any CVS operation, and asks me for my passphrase. I then enter my
passphrase, hit enter, the window stays there and WinCVS just keeps on
waiting. I have to close the dos window manually in order for WinCVS to
complete to operation.
I then tried ssh-agent. This solves the passphrase problem, as I'm not asked
for anything anymore, but an empty dos window still pops up, and I have to
close it manually in order for WinCVS to operate properly.
I read a few messages on this mailing list stating that it could be related
with textmode / binmode, so I recompiled OpenSSH with /usr/lib/automode.o
instead of /usr/lib/textmode.o, and set the CYGWIN environment variable to
binmode, but it didn't help.
I then tried to upgrade to WinCVS 1.3b6, and the problem is a bit different.
WinCVS now completes the operation properly when used with ssh-agent, but the
dos window stays in the background. After a few CVS operations the system
tray gets very crowded. If I close the dos window manually after the CVS
operation is complete, I get a nice blue screen and WinCVS is closed.
Can anyone help me with that problem ?
Thanks in advance.
