The passphrase for my ssh key is just the [enter] key (I tried using  
the default and changing it to my password for user@host before I  
asked for help but it didn't help). If I enter a password, it's  
always the one for the remote host.

I just tried one more thing. I modified deploy.settings (located  
at ../site/) to include a value for deploy.scp.password, and it  
didn't help:

	<property name="deploy.scp.user" value="clay"/>
	<property name="deploy.scp.keyfile" value="/Users/clay/.ssh"/>
	<property name="deploy.scp.passphrase" value="zxaxs"/>

and it didn't pause for input this time. I also tried with:

	<property name="deploy.scp.user" value="clay"/>
	<property name="deploy.scp.keyfile" value="/Users/clay/.ssh"/>
	<property name="deploy.scp.password" value="zxaxs"/>

and this time it did pause. Then I entered my pw for user@host, and
