Bug Description

Graphical SSH passphrase prompt does not come up in front/foreground of guake terminal (focus).

Steps to reproduce:
1) Open a Guake Terminal
2) SSH into a machine which requires pubkey auth

What happens:
Graphical SSH Passphrase window shows up behind the terminal and blocks interface. One must click on it to see it.

-Passphrase should be asked from the command line (how would I change this?)
-GUI passphrase window should be on top of all other windows

Hello komputes, thanks for taking the time to file this bug report and help us make Ubuntu better!

I tried this on natty, the current development release of Ubuntu, and it worked as I would expect, with the passphrase dialog appearing in front of guake.

I'm going to reassign to guake, as I don't think this is a bug in OpenSSH, nor is it one that OpenSSH needs to fix, given that guake is in universe only.

Changed in openssh (Ubuntu):
status: New → Won't Fix

Correction, marking Won't fix in openssh, as its already assigned to guake.

Using 12.04 I have the same issue. It was working in 11.10.
