Description Matt T. Proud 2004-01-25 16:06:59 UTC
Upon creating a *.desktop item for connecting to a remote host via SFTP for
which I have already verified the authenticity via the console without
having provided the password for Gnome's keyring previously, I have noticed
the following abnormalities in the behavior of the dialog box.

Stimulus: Suppose I do not put in a password; I simply hit "Cancel."
Response: The prompt closes, and the same prompt respawns.

Stimulus: "Cancel" the second prompt.
Response: It prompts an "Invalid Action Association" dialog box, saying
"The action associated with `sftp://XXX@yyy' is invalid.

Stimulus: "Cancel" the "Invalid Association" dialog.
Response: It prompts a third "Authentication Required" dialog.

Stimulus: Close the last "Authentication Required" box.
Response: Closes for good.
