Bug Description

Binary package hint: bzr

When uploading to a server via bzr+ssh, if you misspell the password bzr immediately creates a new password prompt, without telling the user why. I think that BZR should tell the user why it is requesting the password again.

Currently bzr produces this:
Enter passphrase for key '/home/bobbo/.ssh/id_rsa': <wrong_password>
Enter passphrase for key '/home/bobbo/.ssh/id_rsa': <correct_password>
Committing to: bzr+ssh://<email address hidden>/*

I think it should be changed to something like:
Enter passphrase for key '/home/bobbo/.ssh/id_rsa': <wrong_password>
Sorry, password incorrect. Please try again
Enter passphrase for key '/home/bobbo/.ssh/id_rsa': <correct_password>
Committing to: bzr+ssh://<email address hidden>/*

Hi David,

These messages are actually displayed by openssh-client, and bzr has
no way of intercepting them to display that message.

Thanks,

James
