Dolphin and ssh keys in KDE 4.4

In KDE 4.3.x, when I opened an sftp location in Dolphin, it would read
my ssh key (stored in my ~/.ssh/ directory) and would not ask for a
password. After updating to 4.4 RC1 (and now RC2), this doesn't happen
anymore. Dolphin seems to read hostnames from ~/.ssh/config just fine,
but it keeps asking me for a password instead of using my ssh key (the
ssh key itself is not password protected.)
Is this a bug or did something change in KDE 4.4? The "ssh" and "scp"
commands work fine. My ~/.ssh/config has this:
Dolphin is able to figure out that "sftp://myserv" means
"sftp://firstname.lastname@example.org" (that means the "Host" and "User"
fields of the config file have effect) but it just won't use my
~/.ssh/identity_myserv key and will ask for realnc at myserv's password
