Workaround appears to be 'ssh-add -d' to remove the dynamically added identities - it then seems to reload from identity file and includes the key comment.

Previously (example from 16.04): nneul@skyhawk:~ $ ssh-add -l 2048 SHA256:...... nn...@neulinger.org (RSA) Now (from current 18): nneul@infinity:~ $ ssh-add -l 2048 SHA256:...... /users/nneul/.ssh/id_rsa (RSA) This is a negative change from my perspective as we are making use of that comment for automatic annotations (not security sensitive) and things like automatically populating git identity when managing a shared application development/server accounts.
