Bug#579277: seahorse: reports wrong keystrength for ssh keys

Package: seahorse
Version: 2.30.0-1
Severity: normal

And one more: When I create a new ssh key with 2048 bit RSA, and I go
to Properties -> Details for that new key, seahorse reports a bit
strength of 2064 bits. The same problem appears with keys created with
ssh-keygen from the command line, but some of my older keys are
correctly identified as "2048 bits".
