Private key / Key passphrase bug in 3.46.1

We have a specific site that has successfully used a private key with a passphrase for over 2 years. With 3.46.1, when I try to connect to the site, it no longer asks for the keyphrase, which has always been required, and subsequently the connection fails authentication.

During investigation, I also received errors when look at the site config. The errors related to the private key file. Unfortunately I did not do a screen capture of the error as I needed to access the site asap.

I reverted back to 3.46.0 and immediately everything went back to normal. When connecting to the site the key passphrase was prompted for and once entered I was able to connect to the site with no issue.

As we use this site weekly, I will not be able to update until this bug is fixed.
