Multiple passphrase prompts when connecting to multiple servers

The activator is not running. When I start SecureCRT and select a folder with multiple servers in the connect dialog, and right click "Connect in tabs", SecureCRT opens and presents the "Enter Secure Shell Passphrase" dialog to decrypt my private key. I enter my passphrase and The first seccion is connected. So far so good.

But SecureCRT then immediately prompts me again for my Passphrase, apparently for the second session to another server. This is repeated for every session in the folder.

I'm not sure if this qualifies as a bug, but I find this behaviour annoying. I'd expect all sessions to connect when the passphrase is entered successfully only once.

I'm using SecureCRT 8.1.4 (build 1443) on Windows 10.
