[ale] automating an ssh script?



K, I was following the directions on:
http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-keyc2/
to try to get ssh-agent to work. Unfortunately, I ran into something
that does not seem to be covered by the directions. 

I got to a point where it wanted my passphrase. I hit it with 
every passphrase I could think of and . . . see result below.
Here's the history:

Question? Does anyone know what is going on?

[werd at funker werd]$ ssh-agent 
SSH_AUTH_SOCK=/tmp/ssh-XXRTZLfH/agent.3271; export SSH_AUTH_SOCK;
SSH_AGENT_PID=3272; export SSH_AGENT_PID;
echo Agent pid 3272;
[werd at funker werd]$ 
[werd at funker werd]$ 
[werd at funker werd]$ 
[werd at funker werd]$ eval `ssh-agent`
Agent pid 3274
[werd at funker werd]$ ssh-add ~/.ssh/identity
