 Priority:  normal     |   Milestone:  2.6                             
Component:  sftp       |     Version:  2.5.3                           
 Severity:  major      |    Keywords:  anonymous speculative background
 I was very surprised when running Cyberduck for the first time that it
 appeared to attempt an anonymous login spontaneously before asking me for
 login information.

 Seemed like bad news as soon as I saw this unprompted behaviour, before I
 ran into problems with it. Why it's doing this I don't know, and I can't
 turn it off.

 However, given the configuration of my hosting provider, which checks for
 multiple usernames attempted during a single SFTP SSH session, this
 effectively prevents me from using SFTP.

 This is the error returned by the server.

 IO Error: Change of username or service not allowed: (anonymous,ssh-
 connection) -> (user at mydomain.com,ssh-connection)

 Can I turn this behaviour off?

 Could I suggest an anonymous checkbox in the login window which the user
 would deliberately choose, instead of a speculative anonymous login in the
 background first - otherwise this seems very odd behaviour to me.
