What version of winswitch is installed on the server and how did you 
install it?

Normal, ssh agent is not supported on win32. (totally undocumented)

I have to admit that I don't test ssh keys support on win32 much, I'll 
have to try to see if I can reproduce.

Hmm, apart from the ssh public key not being set for this server no.
But I suspect you have probably double checked that already..

Feel free to add any details there.
