[ESS] double prompt while connecting to a remote session via ssa on Windows

Dear Emnacs users,

when i connect to a remote R process via ssh I always have a double prompt, i.e. emacs behaves as whether I would hit return always twice. 

Some googleing pointed me here:


So, when I insert the following after starting the ssh process into the prompt, my problem seems to be solved:

stty igncr -echo 

Is there any way to set up ssh or plink to use this setting automatically? I use ssh.el and plink to build the ssh connection.


These are the ssh related settings in .emacs:
(load "<path to library>/ssh.el")
(setq ssh-program "plink")

ssh.el has not really been changed despite inserting the host and username.
