How to use SecureCRT with TortoiseGIT

I've been trying to use the TortoiseGIT tool in conjunction with secureCRT to pull repos off of our git server. I'm trying to use this rather than the built in ssh.exe since all my keys, configs, etc are in SecureCRT and not in all the ~/.ssh/config files used by TortoiseGIT.

Trying to set the SSH agent (TortoiseGIT -> Settings -> Network -> SSH Client) to the C:\Program Files\VanDyke Software\Clients\SecureCRT.exe

Once set, my general options have my correct ID set. When trying to use TortoiseGIT, it does correctly ask me for my key password, however I get the following error using SecureCRT:

git-upload-pack'/ccp/isec/demo' [window title]
Hostname lookup failed: host not found

Note that I don't get this particular problem with the built in ssh.exe client of TortoiseGIT.

It looks like the "execution" line looks like the following:

C:\Program Files\VanDyke Software\Clients\SecureCRT.exe -x "git-upload-pack '/ccp/isec/demo'"
