What happens:
use ssh key with password in session config to connect to x2go server.
client asks for key password despite kde ssh agent running and normal ssh using agent to get password.
cleint asks for key password each time client resumes session.

Both are wrong: as a minimum it should use the local agent to get the key password and connect without request for key password.
what should happen:
Better is if it does that, and (in both circumstances) uses the key as authentication, i.e. without requiring user password.
