SuSE 9.3's default KDE setup starts ssh-agent, so my homebrew solution is no
longer needed (and doesn't work). However, although the agent is started,
ssh-askpass isn't run and no key is added. I tried adding a script
to .kde/env and .kde/Autostart and in each case, ssh-askpass was run, but the
key was NOT added to the agent. Asking Uncle Google for assistance gets
various variations on the env and Autostart themes, but as I said, those
approaches have proved unsuccessful. Ideas welcomed.
