KeepAlive should be off (set to no) if you don't want to to have a
shell die because of a short network problem.  The keepalive option is
for tcp keepalives.  Does the putty documentation imply that the putty
setting does something else?

So you want KeepAlive off (set to no).

If you run ssh -v shell.sonic and it dies what are the last few lines of
what happens?
