Ah, yes it does, I tied it to Putty's Pageant as that seems to be the
closest to a "native" implementation on Windows.

Are you using a cygwin monotone or the native win32 build?  I wouldn't
expect the cygwin build to use the Pageant ssh-agent implementation,
but perhaps it does (I don't use the cygwin binary).

That would be a nice thing to be able to configure, alternatively, it
shouldn't be too tricky to to update the win32 ssh-agent
implementation to support both the Pageant and the cygwin ssh-agent.
