CVS - private key not recognized in 3368

Is anyone else seeing this? I made no changes to my project and my key
is still listed, but it asks me for the password.

AFAIK they changed the way how the passphrase is stored. So you just
have to enter it once again.

You mean you don't have a password set on the key? What happens if you just press ]]>?

BTW: This dialog lies about the location where the password is stored. It's NOT saved in
the workspace (.iws) but in the IDE configuration.

Correct, I do not have a password on the key. Sweet. It works! I
don't ever remember seeing this dialog before.

Yep, before you had to enter the passphrase (if any) that would then have been stored as
plain text in your IDE config files. The request was to make the saving a) optional and b)
more secure by scrambling the saved password.

I guess IDEA should always try the empty password first before prompting for a password.

I see this so what's the problem, save password and enter nothing. It
works fine.
