No luck - on coming back from standby, after  8 hours, get the
"Network error: software caused abort" type of message.
So I presume it must be something on the Windows side that is causing
this, not a OpenSSH issue.

For now, I've minimized the trouble of re-connecting by using public
key authentication, so don't have to manually enter username and
password each time I reconnect.
