The problem lies within openssh when key is read, it will validate buffer size
with filesize which will differ and produce the following failure:

  2014-10-16T10:31:50: ssh[E]: debug1: key_load_file: key file C:\\data\\id_rsa
changed size while reading

Only affects Windows as it is the magical \r\n to \n translation that screws
things up. Fixed in r29994.

Re-fixed in r29997.

Works well. Tested on Fedora 21 and Windows 8.1.

Created a broken key using notepad and test with 4.3.0 client and verified that
it was broken (a password less key presented a password prompt). Loaded the
broken key into client build 4695 and it worked as expected.
