Still the same flaw with seahorse-3.10.0-1.fc20.x86_64
Comment 3 Joachim Backes 2013-11-13 03:49:05 EST
Trying seahorse-3.10.1-1.fc20.x86_64: Adding a secure shell key fails with some weird error popup window:

Couldn't generate Secure shell key:
Generating public/private rsa key pair.
(null) already exists.
Overwrite (y/n)? 
No chance to enter yes or no!

Stderr output:

----------------  snip ------------------------------------
** Message: SSH command failed: (1)
** Message: SSH error: Generating public/private rsa key pair.
(null) already exists.
Overwrite (y/n)?

Got rid of the described problem by installing seahorse-3.10.2-1.fc20.x86_64 :-)
