Wouldn't this not change the behavior for Tomas?  Since his config
doesn't show a private key file, it seems like your patch won't change
behvior for him.

I guess we should get him to test the patch first and see :)

In any case, I've committed your fix since it's obviously correct.  I
added a bit to make sure we free the private_key_file variable since
that's actually allocated memory.



I believe Tomas is using 6.4, which doesn't work (for him) because it always tries to get a password from the keyring. 6.5 includes a patch to never get a password from the keyring (which I'm assuming would work for Tomas - but breaks the private key password scenario). This *should* now be the best of both worlds ;)

I think you are right, I was about to test the former patch (the one that you linked to) but I screwed something up and now netwrok manager wont come up at all. As soon as I somehow fix this I will try your latest patch.
