I have tried gpg-agent with SSH support enabled for several months and
it turned out very useful.  One point that makes me uneasy is that
gpg-agent asks passphrase only once for the first time import of SSH
keys.  I have sometimes mistyped initial passphrases and had to remove
the key files manually.

Here is a patch which makes gpg-agent ask the initial passphrases
twice when importing SSH keys.

	* command-ssh.c (reenter_compare_cb): New function; imported from
	(ssh_identity_register): Ask initial passphrase twice.
