Using --password= and --password-file= causes SSH to fail to login — at Initial Version

Description

Tested with Win7 r7897 against a Fedora 20 r7897 server:

Connecting to the server (started with xpra start :13 --no-daemon --start-child=xterm) with xpra attach ssh:jimador@10.0.32.52 --passwordfile="C:\password.txt" causes the password prompt to pop up, and after entering the correct password, the server and client prints:
{{{ Protocol(SocketConnection?(/home/jimador/.xpra/camarena.spikes.eng-13)): authentication error (this server does not require authentication)
}}}. Upon entering the incorrect password into the dialogue, the password dialogue pops back up asking for a password again.

I have tried all the permutations:

  • Client with --password-file with correct password and correct password into prompt
  • Client with --password-file with incorrect password and correct password into prompt
  • Client with the correct password entered into the password field on the launcher, and correct password into prompt
  • Client with the incorrect password entered into the password field on the launcher, and correct password into prompt

The only way to successfully connect with SSH is to NOT supply a password, and then enter it into the dialogue box.
