Secure Shell Client under Windows7 crashes when adding tunnel

With the gui of Secure Shell client under windows7, when you try to add outgoing tunnel it crashes and windows tell you that program will be ended.

Solution :
1. create an incoming tunnel with your ssh profile :
    Menu profiles –> edit profiles
    Then choose “Tunneling” tab and finally choose “Incoming” tab
    Save
2. go to C:UserswitrApplication DataSSH and edit your profile XXX.ssh2 with simple text editor
you must find your declared incoming tunnel like so :

....
[Outgoing Tunnels]

[Incoming Tunnels]
Tunnel=S:witrTunnel,1521,localhost,1521,0,tcp
....

3. move declared incoming tunnel to outgoing tunnels section and save
4. reconnect with Secure Shell Client and now must be go.
