The TCP/IP stack is different on Windows, so it might be doing the Path MTU 
discovery differently. It's also possible that the SSH implementation as well 
as the OpenSSL one are different, resulting in different packets being exchanged 
over the network.

The problem you're seeing is when a packet is too big and gets dropped.

You should report this issue to your network administrator. It's a really bad 
problem and they have to fix it.
