This patch adds an extra no_tty=1 flag to the connection URI. This stops ssh from asking for a password if it can't log in automatically. Typical use-case for this is in graphical programs where if ssh asks for a password it would cause the GUI program to hang.
I should have added that it is perfectly safe for GUI programs to always add ?no_tty=1 (or &no_tty=1) to the end of URIs. In the non-ssh case it is ignored.
