    Will do, and this will replace the current flakey "store the
    password until you quit Chicken" implementation.

    I implemented this, but I'm not too satisfied with it yet.

    The big question is whether to use the display/port number when storing and looking up the key, or not.

    I usually use VNC with the same port number almost all the time, so the answer is actually not a big deal for me, but I'd expect it could make a big difference in convenience.

    This is already checked into cvs...
    My guess was that >90% of the time, the server password will
    remain the same between different ports. And >90% of the
    time, one will use the same port anyway.
    This bug should probably be closed...

    I use this over 50 hours a week and indeed the port number never changes.
    From my experience, this is typical (it is a PITA to deal with if you are not on-
    site). So, in my case, 100% of the time it remains the same.

    BTW, don't close
    this out until you offer a patch (or a revised version). I'm one of those few that is
    in that "last mile" (i.e. no highspeed bandwidth providers).

    I do not understand why you can't grab the cvs version - but
    so be it. Send me email at kwerle@pobox.com.
