#166 closed enhancement (fixed)

Enable the use of the ssh-agent if running and available

Description

If you have an ssh-agent up and running it is very irritating to add the ssh-key "again" if you have done before during the startup using ssh-askpass.

I would use the same ssh-key to access some remote systems as I have on my system (NFS mounted homedirectory). So the key is already loaded and I guess we could make use of the ssh-agent instead of saving the ssh-key in memory.

I am thinking along the lines of:
