...but further down in the same StackOverflow answer I found PasswordAuthentication=no which completely prevents the password: prompt that was plaguing me!

comment SSH setting a timeout for the 'password' prompt?
Hmmm, that will timeout the entire SSH session, so in my case that will kill the tunnel after the 10s timeout even if it did sucessfully connect and login normally with pubkeys. Also I'd really prefer something portable (no timeout on MacOSX).

comment Synergy dual-screen client
I haven't had to try it yet (my 2nd monitor is still on the way), but it sounds like the config option xtestIsXineramaUnaware = false might help.synergy2.sourceforge.net/configuration.html

comment Google Chrome how to manually stop plugins
My apologies, I thought that when Chrome started sandboxing Flash (v21 on Windows, v24 on Mac) it ran one Flash process per tab. Not true. Experiments confirm that killing the flash player affects all the browser windows. Looks like FlashBlock (or Click to play) is your only real option.

comment Chrome downloads 60 times slower than wget?
Perhaps Chrome is picking up a weird proxy configuration... Is there anything interesting under Chrome -> [wrench] -> Settings -> Advanced -> Network, Proxy Settings?

comment Macports gives “sudo: cannot get working directory” error, then fails
Is either your home dir or current working dir on a remote volume? It sounds like something that could happen if your authentication ticket expired while connected to a kerberized NFS share.
