This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
We don't control this dialog, it actually comes from ssh. Changing component to OpenSSH.
If you write yes as a passphrase I suppose it will work, wouldn't it? The problem with the askpass dialog is that the ssh client does not give any information to the askpass application whether it is a regular passphrase question or any other question which can be echoed. I am afraid that this will have to be solved upstream first. I'll report it to the upstream bugzilla.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
We believe that it is more appropriate for this issue to be resolved upstream.
Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.
Thank you for the bug report.
