Hmmm... I don't think that /bin/sh does have a logout script. However, you may still be able to use ssh-agent using the alternative syntax. You can tell ssh-agent to spawn another command, which is usually used for something like a window manager. Try putting a line like this at the end of your .profile: exec ssh-agent /bin/sh which should put you into your usual shell running as a child of the ssh-agent. Once in, check your environment: there should be SSH_AUTH_SOCK and SSH_AGENT_PID environment variables. The ssh-agent will run until you exit from the shell, and you can load keys into it as normal. Warning: make sure you have an alternate login you can use to fix your account if this all goes horribly wrong and stops you being able to log in at all. I haven't tested doing anything like this myself, so I really don't know if it will work properly or not.
