Bug#516230: Acts as SSH agent despite /apps/gnome-keyring/daemon-components/ssh = false

Package: gnome-keyring
Version: 2.22.3-2
Severity: normal

Today, I tried to ssh somewhere, and got a graphical prompt for my SSH
key passphrase, which my ssh-agent already knows due to libpam-ssh.  I
have gnome-keyring's ssh agent disabled:

$ gconftool-2 -g /apps/gnome-keyring/daemon-components/ssh

Yet gnome-keyring has set SSH_AUTH_SOCK to its own socket:
