So in Seahorse (the Gnome secret manager) deleting the OpenSSH key doesn't just remove an identity from agent, it actually deletes the keyfile.

I should've treated that scary confirmation message more seriously.

Also, my obsessive full disk backups every Monday are totally worth the time.

    The searing hate I feel for gnome keyring leaves physical burns on everything I touch.

    @bahua Same here. So I've decided to move my keys into KeePass since I'm using it anyway. I wanted to remove keys from agent to test them, but `ssh-add -D` did nothing, so I've assumed it's Seahorse's weirdness again and I can delete them in GUI. It worked too well.
