Can't use ssh key to authenticate SFTP

I get the following error message when attempting to use a password-protected ssh key to authenticate an SFTP connection:

I/O Error: Connection failed Decrypted PEM has wrong padding, did you specify the correct password?

This problem may have arisen when I upgraded to Snow Leopard.

  • Milestone set to 3.4.2
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

As of r5865 one can specify a new password for a private key if the decryption fails. This happens if the password for the key changed and the old password was previously saved in the Keychain.

Duplicate for #4162.
