I’ve recently expected several ssh-agent problems on my laptop using a mix of Debian testing and unstable.
- When I use offlineimap to fetch my mail, opening several (up to 5) SSH connections concurrently, sometimes one of the connection asks for a password. When I try again, it just works.
- Sometimes, the ssh-agent process starts refusing connections, so I’m always asked for the passphrase. The only way to fix that is to restart the ssh-agent, by restarting my GNOME session.
Has someone else experienced those problems? It looks like a fairly recent regression.
