Description Dave Jones 2010-07-05 22:12:53 EDT
usually, I get asked my keyring password once, the first time I use ssh, and then it remains unlocked for the session. subsequent invocations of ssh don't pop up the keyring dialog.

In rawhide right now, every time I invoke ssh, I get the keyring dialog pop up asking me to reenter the password.  It makes using cvs from a remote machine really annoying.
Comment 1 Adam Williamson 2010-07-10 13:19:56 EDT
It's not working for me either in current Rawhide, in GNOME or XFCE.

In GNOME it behaves as Dave describes, IIRC. In XFCE, even though there's a /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --daemonize --login process running, I never see anything that looks like a g-k dialog; when I try to ssh anywhere I just get the "Enter passphrase for key" prompt at the console.

Patch from upstream. Fixed it for me.
Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2010-07-13 19:55:27 EDT
That patch also fixes for me (in GNOME, haven't tested Xfce).
