Description From cendio 2018-06-29 12:43:15
If there is some problem with the public key file specified for authentication
then the client will just state "You are not authorized to connect to this
server." This is probably not the most helpful message when the issue is that
we didn't even try a key.

It is apparent what the problem is in the log though:

> 2018-06-29T12:24:37: ssh[E]: no such identity: foo: No such file or directory

The function works fine on Linux and Windows.

However, the error messages (for this and bug 5317) are perhaps a bit too short
and specific for an end user error message. I think some more details would be
appropriate so that the user can know what to do next.

Have improved the messages for the end users now.
