bug#2837: 23.0.91; tramp: ssh passphrase vs. password

Just now I tried to open /ssh:dhcp98:/ and it asked me for "dhcp98's
password".  It *should* have asked me for the passphrase for one of my
SSH keys (id_rsa).  This either means that the prompt is misleading
(i.e. it wants my passphrase) or worse, that it genuinely wants to use
password-based authentication (i.e. ignoring my key).

In GNU Emacs (i486-pc-linux-gnu)
