    I'm wondering whether anybody else is experiencing this: since recently (possibly coincidentally with the Nov 16 beta) I'm asked to supply the SSH key passphrase every time I'm SSHing to some host. The key passphrase used to be in my keychain (and still is), and that used to be enough for SSH to pick it up. Is this a new bug or something fkuc'ed up on my machine?

    Thanks dyn, my keys are RSA-2048, and they work fine. It's just that I need to supply the key passphrase every time I want to use them. It's as if ssh-agent isn't loading them anymore when I log in to the Mac. Running ssh-add to force-load them into the agent works, but this wasn't required with previous betas of Sierra.
