Not so anymore. Just the other day sshfs popped up a password dialog on
my kubuntu becasue it had to reconnect. (i did not start it in fore-
ground mode, so sshfs was running in background mode).
And i have seen ssh to ask for the password on OS X via GUI, it was
one of these things that roll down from the top of the window.
