The private key file could not be found

In order to facilitate the use of KeePass I have enabled the "Display logon prompts in terminal window" under Options => Connection => Logon Actions. Since doing this I now see the following message when logging on to Cisco IOS devices using ssh:


The private key file could not be found:

Note that the public key file and private key file must have the same name (e.g., "" and "Identity") and must be located in the same folder.

The system cannot find the path specified.



I do not see this when logging onto a non-IOS platform. I also don't see this when logging on using other emulators, like OpenSSH in a command window.

It really is just a nuisance but what might be causing this?
