#5987: Bookmark with public key still prompts for password

   Component:  core         |    Version:  4.0.2

 I have an SFTP bookmark set up with a public key. Neither the public key
 nor the account I'm connecting to requires a password, but double-clicking
 the bookmark brings up the login sheet anyway. (Pressing "Login" without
 entering a password then works fine.)

 This is because the decision whether or not to prompt a user for a
 password currently depends on whether or not keychain use is enabled. But
 the information about public keys is stored outside the keychain.

 Patch attached, but I'm new to development here so I don't know if this is
 complete. In particular, I have no idea how to write a test for this.
