[Twisted-Python] conch sshsimpleclient example and password

I'm new to Twisted and I am using 1.3.0-8 on Debian Sarge.  I'm playing 
with the sshsimpleclient in the example directory.  I changed USER to 
'brendan' and HOST to 'localhost'.  The script continually asks me for 
the password even though I have entered it correctly.

I changed the script to use id_rsa instead of id_dsa, and put my 
id_rsa.pub in my ~/.ssh/autorhized_keys file.  Now when I run the script 
I get the expected result of :
    got data from cat: 'hello conch\n'

If I comment out the key in autorized_keys file, the script just 
repeatedly asks for my password even know I know I have entered it 

Any ideas about what I am doing wrong, or is it a bug ???
