Castaway - Ooooh... A challenge... ;-)

There is a problem with ssh-add on Win32 in that the ssh-agent thingummyjob only applies to the ssh-agent associated with it. i.e. you cannot (without a serious hack) run Program Manager (or whatever new-fangled name it's called nowadays) under ssh-agent...

In my cygwin ~/.bashrc I have the function:
newshell() { rxvt -g 90x80+560+0 -sr -sl 5000 -vb -e /bin/bash --login - & }

So, I run ssh-add and then whenever I need a new shell I run the newshell func. (I have an X Client running in the windowless mode...)
I'm sure if you were clever (I think I've used up my allowance for that this year...) you could create the relevant scripts to create those funky little icon things that some people seem to like so much.
