If I change the order of authentication to be `password,publickey', the same message is returned after password is accepted.  IMHO, no message should be printed until full authentication is completed, because "partial success" will give an attacker a clue as to what is going on.  Can this message be suppressed? If so, does it require a patch, or just some config option?
