Bug#642012: x11-common: ssh-agent Xsession script does not check if gpg-agent will enable SSH support


I don't know the policy for overriding packages, but using that patch I
fixed the problem for myself.

As gpg-agent can provide the functionality of ssh-agent, 90gpg-agent can
take over the functionality of 90x11-common_ssh-agent by unsetting

Another way of doing it is to chmod -x /usr/bin/ssh-agent, so using the
alternatives system might provide a cleaner way.
