Password Prompt on File Download When Launched from Command Line

I found that Filezilla prompts me to reenter the password when I download a file. This seems only seems to occur when "Do Not Save Password" is checked, and I start Filezilla from the command line.

This seems to be similar to this issue, except that it triggers from the command line:

I searched for a corresponding bug report, but I couldn't find it.

Here is my procedure:

  1. Open Filezilla and enable "Do Not Save Password" (Edit->Settings, Interface)
  2. Close Filezilla
  3. Open a connection to a host from the command line. The syntax I use is: %path-to-application% sftp://%username%:%password%@%server%:%port%
  4. Right-click on a file on the target host, and select Download. The file is downloaded without a password prompt
  5. Download the same file by dragging the file from the right window to the left. Filezilla promts the user for a password.

I am using Filezilla, on Windows 7 (build 7601, Service Pack 1), 64-bit edition

I tried to enable debugging, but I did not find any useful output.
