I can now use :ssh: to connect to my projects on SourceForge, even the one
with the 3Mb file. This is good. However, I cannot get my private key loaded
into pageant; I always have to type my sourceforge password. If I use plink
separately, with a saved session that specifies my private key, I don't need
to enter the password.

My username at sourceforge is not the same as my username on my local machine,
so I have to specify the username as part of the CVSROOT. Does this affect the
use of pageant?
