Hello all, 

I'm trying to run an ipcluster on a Mac cluster using SSH.  It fails with an error in the log file:
==============
...
[IPClusterStart] Process 'ssh' started: 46805
[IPClusterStart] Process 'engine set' started: [None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None]
[IPClusterStart] ssh_askpass: exec(/usr/libexec/ssh-askpass): No such file or directory
...
==============

I've done some searching online and found that Mac doesn't have a function 'ssh-askpass' but several workarounds have been made for other bundles (Cornerstone2, for instance has a helper application that this blogger linked to as a workaround - http://otherside.mimijidi.com/entries/ssh-askpass-on-mac-os-x/).  Does IPython have something similar, or is this a Mac platform bug?

-Dave
