And yes, it seems to only happen with OpenSSH.
And pressing Enter in a stalled mintty window forces it to close.
I can reproduce this with the mintty option -h error or -o Hold=error
which I guess you have configured in .minttyrc.
Mintty does not terminate then if its child (usually the shell)
terminates with an error exit condition; in recent versions, it will
show a red notice about this.
You can easily try it by typing ^C in bash, then ^D, and mintty (with
hold error) will stay.
If you run ssh, and an error occurs in ssh (e.g. type ^C there as its
last action), that is apparently propagated back to the local shell.
