Thank you for the patch. You are right, the agent authentication was
for some reason omitted from that patch. We should take also this
opportunity to extend the testsuite with this use case (probably only
RSA is tested with agent?). Could you try to update the testsuite with
this failing use case?

In the meantime, there is already a patch solving this issue proposed
in the upstream PR 7:
