I'm trying to use the -c option to ssh-add to make ssh-agent ask for confirmation before allowing authentication using an identity. I am using the identity stored in the default location, ~/.ssh/id_rsa{,.pub} and have tried for keys with and without a passphrase but, if I add the identity with the -c option to ssh-add, whenever I try to use ssh, I get the following error message and, key based authentication is not attempted

Code:
sign_and_send_pubkey: signing failed: agent refused operation


I have net-misc/ssh-askpass-fullscreen and net-misc/x11-ssh-askpass installed.

Anyone have any ideas what might be wrong or, anyone have this working?
