Hostname conflicts with putty session names

Hostnames associated with a saved putty session are used if the hostname used to connect in Filezilla matches the putty session name.
In other words: fzsftp.exe loads the hostname to resolve from a putty session that happens to matches the hostname that was originally supplied to it.
Steps to reproduce:
- Create a putty profile named "foo", with hostname "foobar"
- Create a Filezilla SFTP site profile with hostname "foo" (name can be anything)
- Enable debug output.
- Initiate a connect to your filezilla site.
Command: open "anonymous@foo" 22 Trace: psftp: Implicit session load. Trace: Looking up host "foobar" Error: ssh_init: Host does not exist
Result: It attempts to resolve "foobar"
Expected result: It should resolve "foo"
Comment: This is perhaps acceptable behaviour for psftp when using from the command line, but is unexpected behaviour for Filezilla.
