Fix: SSHKeychain hanging in Lion

Update: I have since discontinued use of SSHKeychainin favor of openssh-agent.

Since upgrading my Mac to Lion I've been having problems with SSHKeychain.  After a sleep the SSHKeychain would be hung (aka. spinning beachball).  I would have to kill it and restart or I would get prompts for my passphrase when I used ssh.

Turns out it is due to the security setting "On Keychain Events".  Since setting "On Keychain events" to  "No action", I havn't had SSHKeychain hang.
