Now my system (new F10 from KDE Live) is *not* popping up the GUI window.
[jerry jerry-opti755 ~]$ gconftool-2 -g
/apps/gnome-keyring/daemon-components/ssh
true
[jerry jerry-opti755 ~]$ env | grep SSH
SSH_AGENT_PID=2320
SSH_AUTH_SOCK=/tmp/ssh-bfNSeF2292/agent.2292
SSH_ASKPASS=/usr/libexec/openssh/gnome-ssh-askpass

Is this a bug? :-)

wishing I hadn't stated my thoughts in the first place,
jerry
