Description Alan McGovern 2012-03-12 10:09:49 UTC
The current NSch code can not cope with the CredentialsProvider returning an incorrect passphrase. i.e. if a passphrase is stored for the ssh key "id_rsa" and then the passphrase is changed for that key, NSch will never invoke 'Reset' on the CredentialsProvider and thus allow the user to input the new passphrase.

A fix has been committed but I'll leave this bug open while upstream deals with the issue. The fix will need to be backed out once upstream has proper support (unless they use the same approach I did).
