  Yes, although I would prefer that the solution would be more
  comprehensive and allow users to make first-time *authenicated*
  connections instead of retrying (with a subsequent prompt for
  the password) only after a first-time *unauthenicated* connection
  failure.

  This would better solve this issue and for bug#26359 as well.

  To each's own...
  
  Thanks.
