Or you can do it the "easy" way. Use public keys without a password on it.
You won't have to type in any password, so you won't get the popup

I agree. Passwordless SSH keys are _very_ insecure in my opinion.

Of course this is a non-issue if your systems are in some private net no exposed
to outside traffic.
