Angry [LOCAL] : Unexpected SOCKS version encountered.

I'm trying to use SecureCRT(7.2) as a SOCKS4 server on a laptop running Win7.

SecureCRT configuration:

I followed the instructions for setting up a SOCKs proxy (
Name -> Name: L3
Local -> Port: 1090
Remote -> Dynamic Forwarding using Socks 4 or 5 checked.
Also, setup the firewall config. This part works, I'm able to use SSH to other machines using this as a jump host.

Browser Configuration:
Chrome version 32.0.1700.107 m
Manual proxy setup: all types same
SOCKS4, also tried SOCKS5 and that gives the same error messages

When I try to browse using this proxy (Trace turned on in the ssh connection), I get the following error messages:
[LOCAL] : Unexpected SOCKS version encountered.

Any help and or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
