selecting an ssh-based synchronization profile from the list [...]
In a clean wheezy chroot, unison-gtk still asks for a password. After

Well... unison implements its own terminal interaction and doesn't use
ssh-askpass. Somehow, this interaction is broken with the new version of
I've put openssh maintainers in CC, maybe they'll have an idea. For
