Aha! Thanks, Kevin. Things are clicking in my brain and I grok now. I just remembered that when I did ssh-keygen on my mac and then ssh'd to my servers, it stored the passPHRASE (right?) in my Mac's Keychain too.

Thanks everyone.

For further reference, can anyone clearly define what topics are valid for this list?
