Comment (by ibrandt):

 Interesting as I think I just found the issue, but it doesn't appear
 related to localization:

 CDConnectionController line
 608] calls:

 but then
 641] calls:

 host.setCredentials(usernameField.stringValue(), passField.stringValue(),
 keychainCheckbox.state() == NSCell.OnState);

 which in turn in Host
 454] does:

 this.setCredentials(new Login(this.getHostname(), this.getProtocol(),
 username, password, addToKeychain));

 The "new Login" there loses the existing Login.privateKeyFile value.

 When we get to SFTPSession line
 286] the call to host.getCredentials().usesPublicKeyAuthentication()
 returns false on account of the null privateKeyFile value, and public key
 authentication is not attempted.

 I couldn't get Xcode to stop at my breakpoints, so this analysis is based
 on a quick reading of the code and compiling in a few debug statements.  I
 very well may have erred, or perhaps this chain of events is only
 triggered for certain locales?
