xenial @ 1:7.2p2-4ubuntu2.1 on amd64 has this bug. trusty @ 1:6.6p1-2ubuntu2.8 on amd64 does not have this bug. I have not tested any other ssh versions.

The following should reproduce the issue:

#ssh-keyscan XXXX > ~/.ssh/known_hosts
# ssh root@XXXXX
Permission denied (publickey).
# ssh-keygen -H
/root/.ssh/known_hosts updated.

Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?
