#53 SSH keys with passwords keep respawning

Currently there seems to be an issue when SSH keys which are password protected are used. SSH keys without passwords work fine, no issues there.

When you are asked to authenticate a dialog is spawned which asks to enter the password, if the correct password is entered, the dialog disappears...and directly pops up again, asking the same question.

Is this code path known to have such issues or?

    Attached is now a patch (written by Robert Nagy) that addresses the issue. It has been successfully tested with several SSH keys.
