That is what I did, although not with a text editor. I have a hashed
version of known_hosts file and unlike the non-hashed file, couldn't
find the line to remove. The warning contained something that might be
line number to *change* but I wasn't sure. That was why I was trying to
find a way to do it "automatically" (ssh-keygen) than firing up vi and
removing the line.

The warning had following in it, is the :3 in the end the line number?

Add correct host key in /home/foobar/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this
Offending key in /home/foobar/.ssh/known_hosts:3
