Hi, Boyan.  Yes, this is a ssh password to enable my work directory to be 
rsync-ed onto another box.keychain caches it, so that when cron calls for it 
I don't have to be present to give it - the rsync can happen automatically.

Perhaps all that is needed is for me to save a session with a terminal open?  
I presume that the fact that it currently has the password would not affect 
the new session, so that I would be asked immediately the session recovery 
was complete.

Or is there a better way of doing it?  Perhaps something I could put 
into /etc/rc.d/rc.local?
