mmmh.. reading 2014.63 changelog:

Fix DROPBEAR_CLI_IMMEDIATE_AUTH mode which saves a network round trip if
the first public key succeeds. Still not enabled by default, needs more
compatibility testing with other implementations

i think it may be relevant to add that i have many pubkeys in my laptop,
and it's quite probable that the *first* pubkey sent by the agent
doesn't succeed in my case.
