Comment(by PeterNSteinmetz):


 move the known_hosts file aside and start CyberDuck. Then copy contents of
 old back into new known_hosts.

 More investigation.

 The funny entries for hostname are hashed hostnames (per the source code)
 and seem to work ok (not sure why needed, and is certainly not then
 legible to people trying to modify their known_hosts).
 The file causing the trouble has finder attribute 32 set, but no
 attributes showed up with GetFileInfo.
 If one starts with no known_hosts at all and launches CyberDuck, it sets
 com.apple.FinderInfo 32 and com.apple.ResourceFork 104704 on the
 known_hosts file and has a custom icon.
