  SSH_AUTH_SOCK not being properly set: user has to type password even
  if saved in the password manager

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: lxde-common

  SSH_AUTH_SOCK is not being properly set. (Or it is pointing to a sock
  that doesn't accomplish its job.)

  Expected behavior:
  You run "ssh" and the password manager opens a GUI to ask 
for the passphrase. Once unlocked, it remains unlocked until you log off. 
Moreover, at that moment of unlocking you can tell it to remember the 
passphrase forever so it gets automatically unlocked next time you login. Any 
other application that uses ssh-like connections will find this key unlocked as 

  Observed behavior:
  You run "ssh" and it prompts you for the key passphrase 
in the terminal. You run it again, you are prompted again. Any other 
application that uses ssh-like connections will result in a passphrase prompt 
as well.

  How to reproduce:
  Enter Lubuntu session
  Open Passwords and Encryption Keys
  Create a Secure Shell key
  Configure this key to some domain you can ssh to
  Open a terminal and run ssh
  You are promted for a password in the terminal interface.

  Partial workaround:
  Here is a partial workaround for a terminal session: export 
SSH_AUTH_SOCK=`echo /tmp/keyring*/ssh` after the keyring-daemon has been loaded.
  But it only works within the same terminal session, not for other 
applications that launch ssh-like processes.
  Disclaim: it works for Lubuntu session inside a Ubuntu 10.04 install, with 
GDM as session manager.

  $ printenv SSH_AUTH_SOCK
  $ ssh mydomain
  Enter passphrase for key '/home/leorolla/.ssh/id_rsa': [pressed ^C]
  $ export SSH_AUTH_SOCK=`echo /tmp/keyring*/ssh`
  $ printenv SSH_AUTH_SOCK
  $ ssh mydomain
