comment Is there a way to password protect individual apps?
Wow, 3 upvotes in 4 hours? I didn't expect too many people to use such a hack, especially since you have to create one applescript for each app you want to protect. I'd like to hear how people are using my solution, even if just for learning new tricks.

comment How to prevent ssh from adding my key to ssh-agent on Snow Leopard?
The "AskPassGUI" worked. Looks like it's actually the passphrase gui that did the adding to ssh-agent.

I will try your "AskPassGUI" solution when I'm at my SL machine. If it works I'll accept your answer. Also, I reverted /System/Library/LaunchAgents/org.openbsd.ssh-agent.plist and put my modified copy in /Library/LaunchAgents/. My mod was loaded.

@chris-johnsen I realize you're trying to be helpful, but please try to understand the details of the problem before laying out an entire step-by-step solution.

comment How to prevent ssh from adding my key to ssh-agent on Snow Leopard?
@chris-johnsen are you actually testing this on Snow Leopard ? SSH on SL acts differently from Leopard. I know that SL's ssh is adding my key to the ssh-agent because I tried this on a new Mac. I can clear the stored key with "ssh-add -D" afterward and then I get the passphrase dialog box again, but that's not an acceptable solution. Logging out will also clear the stored key (this behavior is consistent with quitting ssh-agent). The problem is reproducible. I'm not the only one: serverfault.cms-forex.info/details/144147/…
