#6482: Incorrect password for SFTP private key cached for session
    Reporter:  Motherboard  |      Owner:
        Type:  defect       |     Status:  new
    Priority:  normal       |  Milestone:
   Component:  core         |    Version:  4.2.1
    Severity:  normal       |   Keywords:  SFTP passphrase public key
Architecture:  Intel        |   Platform:  Mac OS X 10.7
 This error occurs on both Windows and Mac.

 Here are the steps to reproduce this error:

 1. Create a new SFTP bookmark in Cyberduck that uses a private key that is
 encrypted with a passphrase.
 2. Double-click the bookmark to connect.
 3. When prompted for the passphrase, enter the wrong passphrase and click
 the "Save password" checkbox.

 The passphrase login will disappear, the user will not connect to the SFTP
 server and the user will not be prompted to re-enter their passphrase. If
 you double-click the bookmark again, an additional SFTP session is spawned
 but there is no opportunity to re-renter the passphrase (i.e. the
 passphrase prompt does not reappear).

 What should occur is that the user should be re-prompted for the correct

 The workaround is to close Cyberduck, reopen it, and then Cyberduck will
 give the user an opportunity to re-enter the passphrase.
