#265: simfactory sync fails with special ssh keys
 Reporter:  anonymous        |       Owner:  mthomas   
     Type:  defect           |      Status:  new       
 Priority:  critical         |   Milestone:            
Component:  SimFactory       |     Version:  ET_2010_11
 Keywords:  simfactory sync  |  
 If I invoke rsync manually, e.g. by:

 rsync -e "ssh -i .ssh/id_rsa-login-damiana"  lu32vak at hlrb2.lrz-

 rsync works sucessfully.

 I have set the following for hlrb2 in simfactory/etc/mdb/hlrb2.ini

 sshopts         = "-i /home/alibeck/.ssh/id_rsa-login-damiana"
 rsyncopts        =  "-e \"ssh -i /home/alibeck/.ssh/id_rsa-login-

 Then I am getting the following message:

 Executing: /bin/bash -c "{ :; } && { :; } && ssh -Y lu32vak at hlrb2.lrz-
 muenchen.de mkdir -p /home/hlrb2/pr32pi/lu32vak/tester/programme/Cactus-

 The string
 ..."&& ssh -Y lu32vak at hlrb2.lrz-muenchen.de mkdir -p
 /home/hlrb2/pr32pi/lu32vak/tester/programme/Cactus-Luca/Cactus &&"...

 indicates that at some place sim tries to login without using my ssh-key.
 This is where sim tries to make the mkdir in advance. Later on the rsync
 command created by sim seems to be correct.
