    Priority:  normal                |    Version:  4.2.1
   Component:  sftp                  |   Keywords:  sftp, ssh, rsa, private

 From what I can tell, Cyberduck isn't working with RSA private keys that
 are 8192 bits in length. I haven't tested longer keys, but shorter ones
 (1024 bits) seem to be fine.

 When attempting to connect to the remote Linux host with my key, Cyberduck
 silently fails to connect. I can connect with my key just fine using
 PuTTY. If I enable password login on the remote host, I am able to login
 with Cyberduck.

 The log drawer doesn't show any information, but if there is a way to
 enable more verbose logging let me know and I'll post it.
