[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: x2goclient
Severity: important

I have not yet obtained a Kerberos ticket via kinit...

I have an SSH private key protected with a passphrase...

My X2Go session profile configuration for SSH auth is:


I expect authentication to fail (reporting that my ticket cache is  
empty or such).

What happens is this:

x2go-INFO-1> "Starting x2goclient..."
x2go-WARNING-1> "Can't load translator: :/x2goclient_c"
x2go-WARNING-2> "Can't load translator: :/qt_C"

Enter passphrase for key '/home/mike/.ssh/id_rsa':

X2Go Client waits for me entering my SSH private key password while  
setting up the SSH master connection.

This should not happen... Authentication should fail and a proper  
error message (GSSAPI requires a valid Kerberos ticket cache or  
similar) should be reported.
