Y'know, that's an interesting question, and one I didn't think of. Thing
is, I did *not* run ssh-agent when I was logging on this morning, *all* I
did was ssh-add. Checking my history, I'm sure of this course of events. I
just grepped, as well, and nothing in my . files runs it, nor does
anything in /etc/profile or /etc/profile.d.
