According to draft-ietf-secsh-assignednumbers-04.txt, "des-cbc" is one of the assigned cipher names for SSH-2. PuTTY currently describes it (in the configuration box, the documentation, and comments in sshdes.c) as non-standard.

OSD: toned down "non-standard" to "legacy", which I claim fixes this.
