Have a look in /home/faheem/.ssh/authorized_keys on bar. You'll
probably find the line ends in '...gnf5t78t= faheem@foo' or something
like that. Change it to '...gnf5t78t= /home/faheem/.ssh/identity' -
doesn't matter if /home/faheem/.ssh/identity doesn't exist. That will
probably make it work.

This seems to be a weird bug that doesn't affect most people, just
selects occasional random victims to confuse the @$#% out of, like me,
and one or two others on this list.

I feel free, but do you actually _want_ CCs, or just don't mind them?
