Creating a putty session with for the git user on the server, saving
the user name and adding the ppk to it solved the problem. It looks
like TortoiseGit uses the id_rsa key, where as msysGit doesn't, as it
probably expects a putty session with a username and saved .ppk key to
already exist for use by plink.
