Package: seahorse
Version: 3.4.1-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
*** Please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * I want to add ssh key passphrase with the command  seahorse-ssh-askpass
   * I  :
         open a terminal (testing with terminator and gnome terminal)
        go to the ssh key directory (cd .ssh/new/)
        execute /usr/lib/seahorse/seahorse-ssh-askpass myprivatekey
        in the opening windows i enter my passphrase
       it's ok and the windows close
   * But my passphrase display on the terminal
   * It seems more secure there's no output to the terminal.

Kind regards

Francois Jay
