I haven't yet found a way around this one.  Attempts to use a key to 
connect to the remote hosts ends with the same error message each time:

	"Permission denied"
	"The specified location is not mounted"

Connecting via the text-based SFTP client in the shell works just fine 
with or without the agent.

So I'm going to go ahead and start a bug report about it
