------- Additional Comments From dtucker at zip.com.au  2005-04-24 09:50 -------
Have added some debugging messages to make it clearer what's going on here,
which will show up with "ssh -v":

debug1: Next authentication method: password
debug1: read_passphrase: can't open /dev/tty: Permission denied
debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,password
Permission denied, please try again.

I didn't make it an error() because that would happen under some conditions
where it's not an error (eg where ssh-askpass would be used).
