I'm currently participating in a competition to go on a 300km, dog-sledding arctic expedition. If you found anything useful here, I'd really appreciate your vote (it takes only a few seconds and a FB login).

When logging in to a server via SSH using a private key with a password, OSX saves your password. The next time you try to login it will not prompt you for your password. To disable this behaviour simply run this command:

launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/org.openbsd.ssh-agent.plist

Hat tip to mr_dbr on reddit for this.
