Hmm.  As I'm back at the console, I gave up and generated a new set ;-)
While I'm here, why does it do this :

    $ skeyinit
    Enter secret password: 
    Again secret password: 
    ID user s/key is 99 host46303
    Next login password: DRAM SEN RATE RAYS TURF MIN
    $ telnet host
    login: user
    Password [s/key 98 host46303]:

I.e., why not ask for 99, which is what seemed to be implied earlier?


PS.  Anyone tried to display their s/key from a remote connection?  It seems
to only accept LF not CR at the end of the password prompt.  Presumably this
is a side affect of the tty settings (it doesn't print a new line after I
enter the password either).
