There was a side-effect on a fix, which broke the XVS ability to generate SSH Keys.
As a consequence, we cannot longer connect to a new Mac in a clean environment.
# Steps to reproduce the issue:
1. Delete the files from "%localappdata%\Xamarin\MonoTouch" (if any, this recreates the clean status for SSH Keys).
2. Open VS
3. Go to "Tools - Options - Xamarin - iOS Settings - Find Xamarin Mac Agent"
4. If there is any known server, right click on it, and forget it.
5. Try to reconnect to the Mac.
6. Enter credentials.
# Expected result:
VS should get connected to the Mac and the server added as a Known server.
# Actual result
VS cannot create the SSH Keys, and shows an error message: "Unable to authenticate with SSH keys. Please try to log in with credentials first".
But any retry entering credentials will keep showing the same error message.
# Environment info
