 Hi there.

 Just to track down the problem of the libssh2 with public-key
 authorization that leads sometimes to a failure.

 [libssh2] Failure Event: -19 - Invalid signature for supplied public key,
 or bad username/public key combination

 It appears to be mentioned in libcurl but not here: it happens once every
 100-150 retries.
 I've attached libssh2 logs for both successful and unsuccesful cases.
 Hope that someone with time/competence on this pieces of code could give a
 hand.

 Regards,
 Antonio

Comment:
 I believe this was fixed in commit
 1aba38cd7d2658146675ce1737e5090f879f3068 on Dec 6 2009, which is included
 in release 1.2.3. Please reopen if you can reproduce with a recent
 release.
