openssh in natty breaks monkeysphere

Bug Description

Monkeysphere allows you to store your ssh keys in your gpg key. `monkeysphere s` should export your ssh key to the ssh-agent. This does not work in natty because of a change introduced in openssh (`ssh-add -l` lists nothing).

The bug is already fixed in Debian (see <>). Suggested fix: pull patch / current openssh version from Debian.

I have verified that the version in Debian built on my machine fixes the bug for me.

(question) Will that happen for natty/natty-proposed or will the fix only be included in the next Ubuntu release? The latter would be quite a disappointment considering the problem makes the client side of monkeysphere unusable for everyone running natty (without building their own openssh packages).
