Please note that version 1.2 is very old now, and several serious
problems have been fixed in later versions. I strongly recommend
upgrading to the latest version, which is 1.2.4.

Strange issue!

I don't have a Windows system, and I think it is more appropriate for
you to instead supply debug logs to those you ask for help.

Please upgrade to libssh2-1.2.4 and repeat the test with full
debugging enabled. Use libssh2_trace(~0); Note that this only has an
effect when the library is built with debug support enabled, which
may not be the case if you install a package that someone else has
built. It would be best if you built your own version of the library,
to make sure that debugging is enabled, and to be able to test any
changes that we suggest in order to fix the problem.

It seems that the problem happens during disconnect rather than
during connect. It could also be interesting to test the SFTP client
from PuTTY which is called PSFTP.exe. In any case this long delay is
a problem and we should at least investigate why it happens and of
course fix it if we can.

Please upgrade and send debug log. Thanks!
