Public bug reported:

When we reinstall a machine we used to enter via ssh, or change the ip
of a hostname ssh doesn't allow us to log into the machine saying the
key has change, then we need to edit the .ssh/known_hosts files by hand
and remove the entry of this host. Ssh should warn the user that the
host key has changed and give the option to allow the connection and
automatically edit that file.
